An awesome place to hang out to view the lake. There is a small beer garden and adirondack chairs (or muskoka chairs for you Canadians). You have to take the Queen City bike ferry from Canalside (you don't need a bike to take the ferry) or you have to go all the way around which is a pain. There are a lot of bike paths from here as well along the water if you're into that.
