This was an excursion from our cruise to New England and Canada. We enjoyed the hiking, biking and kayaking in the beautiful lake. The place is beautiful and it is worth the visit. We enjoyed doing something a little more adventurous, rather than taking a bus ride. The staff was very friendly and we enjoyed the tours around the park.

Beautiful green space with lakes, campground, playground and walking trails. The only fee you pay is for camping. Free parking is a real deal.

The largest urban park in Canada. So much to do. See the ducks, go for a hike, sleigh rides, swimming, skating, and mmm LIly's Cafe. Looking forward to eating at the golf course when Britt's takes over the restaurant later this year. Love love love their food.

I have been snowshoeing in Rockwood Park this winter and discovering fabulous new trails that I never attempted in the summer. It's a great park, with so many trail choices and difficulty levels. I had been going to the Irving Nature Park, which is wonderful too, but it's nice to have another choice so close to everything.
