Grist Mill Ruins

Andy | Thursday, July 11, 2013 | | Best Blogger Tips

Mill Race Park is located in Cambridge, Ontario. It features an excavated "raceway" or canal which once powered the Dickson Textile Mill. The Park is the only park within the city that is reserved for wedding purposes. All other parks are available on a first come, first served basis. Ceremonies are allotted a 90 minute time frame, and photographs are allotted a 45 minute time frame.

  1. Looks good. The water I see is the canal I presume.

  3. It's a beautiful spot and I can see why it is favored by couples for their weddings. And I guess time limits are needed or people would be there all day!

  4. A reservation for a photo location, it must be a popular place for weddings there.

  5. I like the contrast of the old canal with the newer building behind it. I can see why people like to take wedding photos here.

  6. Did you attend a wedding there lately? You seem to know the regulations pretty well!
    Looks like a nice place for it. :)

  7. When you pull it in closer you can see so any details that would look great in wedding photos..with only 45 mins to take them you'd have to get down there and plan your 'poses' ahead and have a snappy trigger fingered photographer :))

  8. Interesting concept. I hoping that when there is no wedding going on, one can wander around and enjoy the scenery.

  10. It looks like this may have been a big mill, and what a beautiful setting for it.

  11. I read this too quickly the first time and missed that it was 'weddings where there was a time-limit on photographs. Ahha -- now it makes sense. It would be a beautiful setting for a wedding and I'm sure professional photographers could take lots of great shots in that time. (and it is a beautiful area even if you aren't in the market for a wedding.)

  12. I know there parks here in the city where you have to have a permit in order for them to control the weddings! Lovely spot.

  15. Such a wonderful location, Andy. A public park reserved exclusively for weddings? That is unusual.
