Boat drop-off is allowed right before the entrance to the Rotary Park parking lot. The boat dock is located at the end of Rodeo Drive, behind the BLESS Shelter. More information

Attracting athletes and fans from across the Capital Region, Riel Recreation Park features an outstanding multipurpose artificial field, as well as rugby and soccer facilities.
