I learned about this spot when I first got here. My friend’s father does some canoeing along the water of the island of Reimersholme, so he was familiar with the area. I fell in love with it. It’s so peaceful and quiet on the docks along the water. It’s a great place to relax.
This spot is a good spot for most of the year, but it’s naturally the best in the summer. That’s when I go the most. At that time, there are likely to be canoes coming through to break the silence. It’s always a welcome interruption when I get to see the waves on the water break against the docks as the riders go by.
Reimersholme is a good place to take a quick dip as well. The water is calm, and the docks are low, making it easy to get in and out. The island of Reimersholme is cool in and of itself. It’s like a small, quiet neighborhood just a short walk from Hornstull. I like to check out a local shop and grab a snack to enjoy while I relax near the water.
