The City of Brockville is enhancing Reynolds Park with new benches and commemorative bricks along the Brock Trail overlooking the St. Lawrence River.

This project has transformed a former coal storage yard into a usable park, connecting it to other waterfront parks via the Brock Trail, a network of active transportation pathways. The park’s trails feature solar lighting to ensure pedestrian safety in low light conditions.

The renovated space includes a drop-off zone with a paved path for easy access to the waterfront for people using mobility aids. This improvement also facilitates scuba divers in loading and unloading their equipment and accessing the on-site scuba staircase for shore dives. The area now includes parking for 41 vehicles and a new sidewalk on the south side of Water Street.

The future of Reynolds Park will include the addition of a boardwalk, pavilion, more benches and trash receptacles.

This project is funded by the Government of Canada through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario).
