The oldest of all of the Parks of the St. Lawrence, Brown's Bay was the only provincial park between Gananoque and the Quebec border before the St. Lawrence Seaway came into existence. The large beautiful beach makes this location perfect for swimming, relaxing and having relaxing picnics in the shade with friends and family.
