See Husky the Muskie and the Goodwill Geyser in McLeod Park, Kenora’s harbourfront, the downtown shopping area, restaurants and fast food outlets, a museum, wall murals, wetland areas and peaceful residential areas. Enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings of this community and to cool off take a swim at Anicinabe park’s public beach.
