“Great park”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Is a great place to go for walks, to take the kids to play, rent a canoe or just start your river adventure from there. There is a mini golf, train rides and wadding pool to refresh. Make sure you bring plenty water and why not picnic.

“A piece of heaven”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

Every time I have been here I just love the vibe. Each time I feel so relaxed after. It doesnt matter how many times I've been here it always has the same affect. I mean the best time to go is in the summer time and do a true picnic and all. The mini golf as I remember was a fairly easy course. They should make it more fun and challenging though.

“All year round outdoor fun within the city!!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Under renovation right now, but this park is so lovely with so many things to do in one place if you like the outdoors without feeling like you are in the city. It has many things to do for an individual, family or with friends all year round! Easy to find with ample free parking.
This park is also by the river, so you can take a stroll and stop to throw rocks, sit to read a book, or even jump in for a little swim.
You can have a family picnic/BBQ and play frisbee. It even has a couple little kids park and few water spray fountains for the young kids to run through.
Rent a canoe with friends or your partner or kids and then get an ice cream afterwards at the concession.
Play mini golf....
Feed the ducks at the pond....
Or in the winter, go skating on the pond!
Go check it out! It's a great place to spend an afternoon or evening!

“Very popular with the locals”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Very popular city park for picnic group rentals, outdoor skating, canoe launching for river runs. Under massive renovations and restoration for the next year due to river flooding.

“Little town grew up!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Fondest memories of yesterday (dad-kids) picnic in the forest. Fishing swimming, if you dare. Train bridge my first big jump circa 1970. Feels like your in Bow/Hoe, people are usually great.
