  • Really cute park and beach area. There is a playground for kids and many water based activities to enjoy. The beach has swimming, there is kayaks, paddle boards and canoes that one can rent. You can also dock your boats at the marina and go for a sail if you desire. Really would recommend this park for a fun trip.
  • Would love to see an amphitheater here. Or something to replace the old gazebo. Also the kids play area could be expanded. But love the overall look and how there had been added parking and parkland. Looking forward to the future of our stunning waterfront. We should forever treasure this gem. As most cities are as lucky to be situated on suck a beautiful private bay and lake.
  • Wonderful park by a beautiful beach! The scenery is lovely and the paths are great if you want to walk around the lake. There is a playground for children and a long stretch of beach with plenty of space. Makes for a great, fun day out!
  • One of the only things worth doing in Barrie. It's a GREAT in city beach. The city spent many years reviving it and it's all coming together now. Much busier than it used to be. Not worth moving to Barrie for but definitely an important part of the city! Really nice!
  • It is great for kids as there is swimming and picnic tables and also a park for the kids. Lots of trees if you don't want the sun. Washrooms and change rooms and a snack bar. It's great
