Is it a close walk from Fort Malden to the Kings Navy Yard with kids in tow? I would like to do some events at both this weekend but once I park I do not want to try to find another parking spot. Should I park at the far end of the fort closer to town. Any suggestions where to park would be appreciated.

Thanks

There will also be free shuttle buses from Devonshire Mall, running every 40 mins. or from Allied Chemical parking lot.

Thank you so much! I think we will be going Saturday. Looks like some really fun stuff to do. Ds is excited.

My only other question is it say the pick up is at honey well parking lot and drop off at the school.... do we then catch it from the school back to devonshire? it says nothing about it.

I could be wrong but the way I understand it is:

Windsor to Amherstburg (and back) is pick up at Devonshire, drop off at General Amherst (and vice versa to go home)

Locals or people that want to drive but don't want to be bothered with finding parking would use the Amherstburg drop off and pick up from Honeywell to the school.
