McArthur Island Park

McArthur Island Park

Sports and nature abound

McArthur Island Park is a must visit for the active tourist. Golf, soccer, football, baseball, and cricket games can be viewed as you stroll around the perimeter of the park on the paved trail.

Unorganized recreational pursuits include walking, jogging and rollerblading on a 3.1 km paved perimeter walkway. Much of the walkway passes by unique and natural riparian areas and the deck along the south side provides a relaxing rest spot and a place to observe many different birds.
