This is a great place to go for a walk/hike. There are off leash areas as well for all you doggy owners. Also historic points of interest along the way.

My wife and I got lost in this beautiful park for well over 2 hours. We had a lot of fun walking around and people watching. Very beautiful park.

I visit this park as often as possible with my dog. It has great off leash trails that are wide and take you throughout the entire park.

Lots of open and forested trails. Great scenic views! Nice area to spend a day alone, with a friend or your family.

The Bf & I went to the park and got lost. No worries there were ppl and dogs everywhere. There are twists & turns everywhere but signs and paths are easy to read and walk. Big surprise is the Prince Wales Tower. Very nice but under renovations. Beautiful sunny day to go and it was a great 3 hours.

If you have a dog, you MUST take him/her there. Guaranteed great time! Also a wonderful spot for a jog, or walk around without a dog. Monday-Thursday you can bike around it too. Great views of The Arm, and a great place to sit and take a breath for a moment to yourself.
