The most popular location in the city of Cambridge for wedding photos and wedding ceremonies is Mill Race Park at the corner of Parkhill Road and Water Street North. Mill Race Park is the site of the official Canadian Heritage River Designation Plaque.

Built within the ruins of the old Dickson Textile Mill, Mill Race Park features an excavated canal (raceway), which once powered the mill. There is a concession booth which operates seasonally, along with a washroom and an area with picnic tables.

Mill Race Park is the only park in Cambridge that you can reserve for weddings and pictures. All other parks are available on a first come, first serve basis.

Minimum of $2 million liability insurance is required for Mill Race Park rentals.  This may be purchased through the City of Cambridge or proof of insurance must be provided by rentee with City of Cambridge listed as Additional Insured, at time of payment.
