Expensive to get in. But if you go online, you can get a two for one special. The beach is overcrowded. Lots of children and teeny-boppers. You are better off just walking in the park where it is free and having a picnic there.

Stupidly overpriced. Parking and entrance fee $50!!!! Unbelievable! Not worth the money. First time and last in 20 years

Some sand, some water - save yourself from the parking prices and the ticket entrance fees and go to Oka instead. The place gets incredibly crowded on hot days - think of it more like a pool.
