On Remembrance Day,my daughters, niece, sister-in-law and I took my granddaughter and great niece to the park. It was lovely and surprising warm day and we spent several hours walking the trails, playing in the playground and feeding the horses. The children especially liked feeding the ducks and the look on their faces was priceless! :D

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!
