I just love going to the lake in the park and watching the geese and their babies. One time I went there were 24 babies with one set of parents. I don't know if they were babysitting or all them were theirs but it was fun spending hours watching them, feeding them and just taking pictures.

Great place to go for a picnic, lots of open space for group activities, and nice trails for running around the park.

There is a lot of nice walking you can do, hire a water bike and paddle around the lake. When the trees are out in fall it really is lovely.

This is a beautiful city park with the river running along one side with walking trails to enjoy the river area where you can see many different kinds of birds and wildlife. There is a small pond in the middle of the park which is home to many flocks of ducks, geese and other birds; with paddle boats to rent.... More

If you want to get outside, close to nature and enjoy a picnic, this park is the place to head to! You can make a fire, roast some hotdogs, walk around the man made lake and watch the birdlife, head to the river to see the views from the riverbank and just lay in the grass if you want! Close...

We had a great visit and picnic there. We were with our grandchildren and they found lots to do and things to find, and although we are dog lovers there are no dogs allowed there and so you don't have to be wary of doggie poop, the lake was great and the paddle boats are fun Lots of wildlife and...

This park is still a natural beauty, no commerce entities as yet . Basically clean facilities. Hawrelak is easy to locate and to get into with vehicles - car or bike. Good parking for the cars, and plenty of room for everyone to enjoy their own space and unwind.

Nice park with lots of space but during large events parking and/or getting from the site is horrible. For Pets in the Park we waited 20 minutes to be told we had to do a park and ride. I asked to drop my daughter off and was allowed to go it and I found a parking spot within a minute.... More

Great oasis located in the city!! You can also take in any concerts/theatre happening at the park by just sitting on the grass and listening (for free)!
