Queen Elizabeth Gardens
"To commemorate the visit of Queen Elizabeth The Second to Ontario in 1984, the Province and The St. Lawrence Parks Commission presented the Queen Elizabeth Gardens as a gift to Her Majesty."
The garden is outside of the park. When you turn into the driveway of the park, you see right away. Beautiful flower beds like this and many more. It is absolutely free. This means, even if you are not interested seeing the village it self, you can always stop and see the rose garden. There is a small lake as you walk deeper into the park. This lake has a huge water fountain right in the middle. It's worth a visit. Especially when you like gardens like me. :)

Things to see as you walk around
There are many things to see as you walk around the village. This wool drying rack on the side of the road was very interesting.
It's near by the Asselstine's Woolen Factory. When you enter the village, you can see this on your left hand side as you walk up the small road, towards the factory. You will also see out of service tools and accessories villagers used in their every day lives.
When I saw this rack, I didn't think of it as wool. Than I went closer and actually touched the wool. After that I knew it for sure. it was placed outside to dry. Unfortunately it was raining when we got to the village and the wool just got wetter.
