  • Its a good place to go for a walk or bike ride and also good for snowboarding in the winter. Not one of the very big parks
  • This is one of the most beautiful park in the city. Meticulous taken care of. Little boutique park.
  • Well kept park, but mostly designed for walks or biking. Not many picnic benches around. It has a small playground for kids. Had a good time.
  • Pretty park. Good for a walk or a bike ride. Plenty of water fountains along pathway. Small park for the kids. Great tobogan hills in the winter.
  • This is a great recreation park. The pathways can be ridden or walked all day without getting bored. Plenty of places to picnic or kick a ball around. Multiple parking and access points.
