Harrison Park

Harrison Park is large It has a trailer park The people camp out They spend their summer In this park is a restaurant All the food is home made This place is always packed They are enjoying their meal The park has visitors Rain or shine people come To visit the small zoo To see animals There are cages with birds They are different species A partridge waits to show His pretty feathers spread For evryone to see he likes to display them For everyone to see To show off his colors

Nicely done Darlene; Memorable memories of Harrison Park back in the 70s. The chalet was lovely & one winter the place caught on fire.

Definitely, it was fixed up. But, back then it was the place to be, especially in winter. The Owen Sound Winter Carnival, chalet roasts of hot dogs and marshmallows, music, dancing etc. It was just a fun place to go to. And James Alexander Tucker, a great Cdn. poet from Owen Sound whose legend still lives on.

Hello Thomas Wells, Thomas this park is in Owen Sound Ontario. It is a huge park. It has a camping ground. It has a small zoo. Dog shows are held there. It also has buildings from the past. I miss it. I lived in Wiarton. Owen Sound is a 1 hour drive from there. Have a nice day my friend.
