We were in town for the ITU Triathlon World Championships that were centered at this park. The lake is very nice (but small) and the grounds well appointed. A nice place to visit if you are in town.

What a lovely park. The lake is fantastic and has washrooms close by. The park is not far from the river walk and is a good destination to bike to. There are many trails for walkers and joggers and seating an d barbecue areas too. We loved it. It is now iconic having held the World Triathlon Championships there.
