“Peaceful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

I go for a walk or bicycle ride around Fairy Lake as it is so friendly, peaceful and adventurous. You meet so many nice people walking alone or with someone or their pet.

“Old Newmarket Enhanced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Good place for greenery and involvement if you want, or some solitude if you wish. Nice to see some open space left in an expanding town. Many functions year round. Festivals, music and food for instance. Farmers market. Pleasant area for walking, cycling or to just relax. A people place.

“Take A Stroll - Don't Feed The Geese!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Lovely walking path perfect for biking (and is connected to miles and miles of biking trails see town of Newmarket site for maps). There is a covered area and bbqs for those wanting to make a day out of it. A lovely stroll over the bridge brings you to a child's playground. There is often entertainment in the summer, including the annual (and very fine) Shakespeare On The Lake. There are fireworks for the various holidays, often live entertainment for various ages and a beer tent for adult music at night. I could live without the beer tent, it just encourages people to be loud, obnoxious and drunk (and I drink!) but it's nice to have outdoor plays and music close by. The park is over run with Canada Geese and too many people feed them. The geese are overly comfortable around people and may aggress towards you and/or your children if you are holding food. Please do not feed the geese! This lovely park area has a huge problem with Goose droppings everywhere..................... geese are fairly large birds so................ watch your step and avoid eating near the water if you are sensitive to smells.
