Whatever your expectations are lower them.

I realize it is the smaller version of the Fox's Den.
But, you still expect a base line attempt or minimal standards to kept.
To be specific I ordered the Black Bean Burger with fries.
The fries were under cooked, soggy and under seasoned.
The onions on the burger were candied with sugar not carmelized.
So sweet they were dessert like, just what I wanted on a commercially made burger, because it obviously was not made in house.
Oh, and also don't add condiments that are not stated in the menu.
The nachos my girlfriend order were equally poor. Barely warm with weird chunks of meat on them. But surprisingly burnt, despite being cold.

I know this isn't an A-list restaurant and you haven't staffed it with your best. But don't live down to people's already low expectations.

The modern two-storey library at McDonald Island Park has something for everyone. I like to sit by the large windows on the upper floor to read. It is very relaxing.

I really enjoy going to the pool area, especially on cold winter days. It feels like a resort especially if you utilize the slides and lazy river. so much fun for adults and kids. Plus there are so many other things happening at the same time!! There's a great library, tons of gyms, hockey rinks, places to eat and events happening. Just a fun all around place.

Billed as the largest sport and recreation complex in Western Canada, (maybe in the world), MacIsle has just about everything you could be looking for. Olympic size swimming pool? Check. Very good 18 hole golf course? Check. 800 person capacity banquet hall? Check. Baseball park that has hosted Canadian amateur championship? Check? Football field that has hosted a Toronto Argonauts regular season home game and an October outdoor concert of John Fogerty? Check. (Fogerty singing in the snow was awesome, a different kind of Cajun Country, eh John?) Climbing wall, biggest darn collection of elliptical machines, badminton court, host to world's largest oils and trade show, hockey? Only three rinks, Curling, art gallery, water park to rival West Ed, library, child minding. I am stopping now, not because I have listed everything but because I am tired. Only complaint is it is too big, I am tired by the time I get to the dressing room for my old timers hockey games. A small quibble I guess. It is a remarkable place that sees more than 5000 people a day go through the doors. If you cannot find something to do here, you need to leave this galaxy.

This is one place where one can always find something fun to do as a family or individual. There are usually events going on you can be a part of or enjoy visiting. Lots of activities to choose from

What a great place to spend an evening, you can work out, then go for a swim, or just relax in the hot tub.

I have a membership here and use the facility for badminton, running, swimming and hot tub, but mostly weight training. The trainers are great, knowledgeable, helpful, the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming and the complex is large and updated. A great in-town “getaway”.
