Brown’s Bay Park

We left Ramada Inn after breakfast. It was an overcast day, as it rained earlier. We passed through the Cities of Morrisburg, Iroquis, Cardinal , Prescott and Brockville along Highway 401. The view of the St. Lawrence River was very pretty and fascinating.

After about 2 hours or so, we left H-401 and entered into the Thousand Islands Parkway. The said road is more or less 40 kilometers connecting the Cities of Gananonque and Brockville.

This scenic byway showcases 1,864 Islands /islets along St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario.

We were traversing this road when we found the Brown’s Bay Park. It was a charming place with huge trees lined up beside the river.

Its serenity was a welcome respite.

Fall colors were visible from a distance. Making it all the more beautiful.

White tables and chairs were ready to use for those who wanted to have a picnic beside the water. The park was devoid of people when we were there though because it was cold. It was a windy 40’f (2’c) that day, after all. So yeah, only crazy travelers like us had  the guts to brave the  cold air. 🙂

Before we left, I took this photo of a mansion in an island across the park.
