Visiting the Park in February, I was surprised at just how green the park is throughout the year, with plenty of green trees, shrubs and plants. There is a small but delightful cafe selling a range of tasty hot and cold food. Toilets for the park are located directly behind the cafe, and there is a large children's play area directly in front of the cafe. As such the cafe is very busy, but copes admirably. Close to these facilities are tennis courts and a mini/crazy golf course. Further into the park there is a rose garden, and a tree trail. The park itself comprises a number of walks around the central lakes, on which more than twenty pairs of herons nest on an Island in the center. As they nest just 50-100 feet from the banks, it is possibly the easiest place to see nesting herons. There is an abundance of wildlife with many Canada geese, swans and grey squirrels all around the park. The latter are very used to being hand-fed, so are rather bold. Please note, because of the wildlife, dogs are only allowed in the park on the cafe and playground side of the lakes. Gates with notices make clear where they are and are not allowed to roam. The park is open from 7:30am mid-week and 9:30 weekends, the park closes from 4:30pm - 9:30pm depending on time of year/daylight. I highly recommend the park for families with young children and bird watchers, but for couples there aren't enough secluded spots, although there are more than enough park benches on which to sit and hold hands.
