“SAD”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

Sad to see a lovely park left unkept and untidy. Should be the place to go to but it is not.

“Its a lake !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

Not much to say - its a lake in the middle of a suburb - boating, canoe-ing, picnics, and a boating club. I wouldnt swim in it though !

Not what it used to be like a few years ago. Very unsafe and dirty! Will never go back again!
