By the Grand River in the old city of  Galt, one of the more unique features is the excavated mill race (or canal) that once powered the mill that was built here in the 1940s. Within the Mill Race Park is the ruins of the Dickson Textile Mills which has been turned into an amphitheatre with window views to the river below.
