A fascinating display of kites, people, and nature. During the month of August, people can use their own kites. There were plenty of kits and people but an overall sense of peace and serenity despite the density. Also a lot of yummy and unhealthy temptations.

It's a good Park to have a nice stroll, have a picnic, and do a lot of activities/sports. I would recommend to go with family and friends.

Me and my boyfriend went there as we had no plans for an afternoon, so we decided to go for a walk. It's a great peaceful place, out of the noise of the city, and the boat rental it's really fun and worth it. We had fun doing that!

A great place for families or anyone else to get away from the city. There are a good selection of food vendors and lots of space to let the children run around. The lake is nice and well maintained. The views are nice and there was obvious security. It is good for running, cycling or just taking a nice walk.

Huge beautiful park helps you to escape the city. The lake is the best park with several trails going around it. The park is larger than Central Park, New York. There are many kinds of trees here including maples.

In the middle of a busy city where traffic congestion is the agenda, this is a very good place to have fun and have a relax time.

There is a lot of nature and fresh air. Go on a sunny week day. Weekends are too crowded. Bring some walking shoes and bottle Of water.
