Beautiful park. Perfect day for a walk. Nice views of Lake Ontario. Not very crowded at all. Tons of bugs! I don't know if they were mosquito's or fly's but they were annoying!

Great trails to walk across the shore, there's a giant playground and splash pad for the kids, tons of space to set up for a picnic or for large groups. For the most part no real obnoxious people hanging out here. Just families or couples...More

It's very nice park along the shore of lake Ontario. There is free parking place, walking trail along the lake, playgrounds and picnic places. Oshawa museum is located inside the park with Heritage houses and the history of it's owners.

A lovely spot! Lots of places to walk, sit, lie on a blanket, soak up the sun. Usually a couple of food trucks so if you didn't bring food, you are not out of luck.
