A gem

This my dogs' favourite place in the universe. What more could I say? But I have to say more to have the minimum number of words. Lots of hidden spots.

Good for families with young children, church activities, and couples. A good escape from the city, bring your bike or skates.

This is a great visit at all times of the year, whether to watch the Canada geese preparing for their journey south or the skaters as they fly around the lake in winter. This is also the site of the annual Heritage Days festival, when you can sample all kinds of ethnic foods and watch all the various national dancers.

It's not a very large park, but with a lot of charm! It has a little lake, a playground for kids and is excellent for walking and cycling! Just watch out for the geese, there tend to be a lot of them. They have great picknick areas, and check dates for special events at the park.
