This location is day-use only and will take approximately 1/2 day.

If you're looking for somewhere to do some recreational paddling, relaxing, fishing or swimming, I can't think of a better place in the region than Charles Daley Park. In comparison to many other waterfront parks in Niagara, Charles Daley is relatively quiet, especially on weekends. The parks has been undergoing some upgrades - probably the most important feature to paddlers is the washroom building.

You enter at the mouth of the Sixteen Mile Creek and paddle under the Queen Elizabeth Highway and head out to the large body of water. On sunny days there are a lot of large turtles that sun themselves on the secluded shoreline.

About a 1/2hr paddle into the "creek" you will come across a beautiful, deserted, and secluded island which has a great beach on the south (windward) side and is great to eat lunch at, and relax.

Be sure to Leave No Trace here as it is a small island and will get overused very quickly.
