Small museum, well-kept grounds, excellent view across the harbor, very short walk from the center of town. Worth a visit.

This park is very well kept and has beautiful views of Lake Ontario. We took our time walking the grounds and went in the gift shop to find out about the tour. We had a tour of one of the houses for only $3 each....More

This was a pleasant walk with good signage and a great view of the lake and harbor. Include in your walk the humble but interesting museum about one block away and the tourist bureau. Both have exhibits worth a few minutes of your time.
