Nice area to walk and relax. It’s suitable for persons who require wheelchairs and scooters. The parking areas make it difficult to know that there are walking paths nearby.

Decided to take in the beauty of Bower Ponds today. It was an easy rental process and the boats were on the dock ready to go. The staff is friendly and the time went quickly. A little pricey for the hour but fun nonetheless.
