“Excellent Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

I liked 100% of my experience, people were warm, supportive, and non-judgmental. I met great people and really would consider moving to Vancouver.

“Beautiful Park with Great Biking/Walking Trails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

We love to ride our bicycles around Central Park - wide, well-maintained trails and not a huge number of people make for a lovely park visit. We bring along a picnic and seek out a grassy spot under the trees by one of the many ponds or streams to chill for a while.
