Centee Park

Beautiful area for everyone to swim from kids adults and dogs.  Local artists Dave Sheridan and Stephen Hatch, as well as students from Thousand Islands Secondary School (TISS) and Brockville Collegiate Institute, created the underwater sculptures (BCI).  They serve as a memorial to those who have died in the river.
These were installed by SOS to serve as both a diving attraction and to alleviate diving traffic on local wrecks.
This is a fun and fast dive.
