Lots of walkers, joggers and office workers released for lunch fill up this busy trail around this manmade lake. It is 5km (3.1 miles) around the entire lake. If you have young children, a wonderful place to take them is to Fairyland, which is a fairy-book themed adventure park for the tiny set. They have small rides, a petting zoo, storytime and puppet shows. On Saturdays there is a Farmer's Market located at one side of the lake.
