Regarding Centennial Park. From the Town of Smiths Falls website:

“Home of 100,000 blooms” passive walking park with water fountains along the Rideau canal. This lovely park is a nice place to come and enjoy your lunch, walk along the trail, have a picnic, observe the locks open and close while the boats come and go, chat with the tourists who dock their boats in the summer time, go swimming or just enjoy the scenery.

During the summer months under the water tower you can enjoy movies under the stars with featured movies each week. Grab a blanket and some snacks and take a seat on the grass.
