The park is excellent for all kinds of activities, from walking , swimming, biking, or just being out enjoying the nature, it has it all, right down to picking blueberries. It is nice and quiet, hard to believe it is in the middle of a city. Just an awesome place.

Close to downtown and the Bay this is basically a gravel parking lot with many hook ups. Driving around the area we saw camping spots on a road in the trees with more privacy. Since it was just for nights with being gone all day it was fine. Could use more signs directing your way as it is indeed at... More

Brilliant park space in the middle of the city! Everything available here, camping by tent or by caravan. Lakes to swim in, playground for children, movies every Tuesday at dusk. Full service restaurant, canteen, bathroom facilities, canoe rental. Nature trails and you can even hear the lions from the nearby Zoo. Highly recommend you visit this oasis in the city.

This park is one of the nicest municipal parks I've seen. Lots of biking options, hiking trails, geocaches, lakes for swimming, even a cafe and a canteen. I barely covered any ground while I was there and saw lots!

Didn't have a chance to walk nearly half the trails here. Will be returning someday down the road for sure. Beautiful small lakes and variety of trails. If you like walking in the parks with a few hills this is a good place to check out. Very clean.

Very nice park with tons of activities. We just enjoy seating by the lake looking at the ducks waiting on a beautiful sun set.

I've had my bike out several times now. If you are a novice then make sure you swing by the visitor centre and get a trail map... Avoid anything that is 'difficult' or above... I learned my lesson. Ample wildlife... beaches. Lily's Cafe is a great little spot. Had the chowder and a naanwhich there. REALLY GOOD.
