This is in the heart of the old part of the city with some interesting architecture but a brand new city hall. In summer there is a splash pad for small kids in front of city hall.

Spent a couple of hours walking around on a Saturday morning and enjoyed looking in all the shops. Lots of pubs, restaurants and bakeries. Splash pad looked great for those with small kids.

When I lived in Guelph, this was a great market to get vegetables. Only go maybe once a year now when in town. Miss it. Good quality and prices.

Very cool that they have movie nights in the summer! A great place for kids to splash around or to enjoy a morning coffee.

Lots of interesting shops and restaurants. Wading pool for the kids is a good idea. Architecture of buildings is nice.

We went to Market Square on the 21st of June to celebrate our heritage and they had the splash pad for the kids and plenty of room for the native dancers, they also had vendors set up with gifts and food. This is the second year and we really enjoyed ourselves.

Visited briefly. It has a big public fountain for kids and adults to walk around it. You won't get wet, most of it is just a 3-inch deep pool. The restaurants across the street are decent and it's right in town.
