Quite possibly the most affordable place for a family as it offers an amazing walking/bike trail that circumnavigates the entire lake. There are BBQ and picnic tables throughout, clean washrooms (surprised!) and extremely helpful and friendly staff. Parking: Ample!

Beautiful trail over the water and some areas through the trees. Beach and grassy spots for picnics or just chillin! Very well maintained and animal friendly with leash. There are lots of activities held here but I can't comment on those as I've never attended.

We had such a good time at this park. My son is 4 months old and I was able to push him on his stroller. Great for families.
