Beaches and Swimming Areas

Brockville is situated on the St. Lawrence River, providing visitors and residents with lots of beaches and swimming areas. With many parks along the waterfront, there are also areas such as Centeen Park with deep water where you can jump from a ledge (over 1.5 meters high) into the river.

The Brock Trail now connects all the way from Centeen Park to St. Lawrence Park making both swimming areas easily accessible by foot (although keep in mind that it is approximately 2km from one park to the other). The Brock Trail is a paved walking and cycling path that runs along the waterfront as well as up through town, keeping you off of the main roadways.
