In the late 1800s, tall ships crowded the harbor as St. Marys was the southernmost point of the United States and a prime trading port for the America's. Today, the beautiful St. Marys Waterfront Park lines the river's shore and is a great place to spend some time during your stay. You can enjoy a riverfront walkway. A public boat launch and dock are located here. A private marina is located adjacent to the park. There is a playground for kids. The waterfront park is the perfect setting for weddings and special events that require a naturally beautiful outdoor setting and is a popular location for many parties and events.
