  • A beautiful long trail around the lakes allows for a fantastic long walk if you are up for it. Be careful to track your time on the trail as there are several side trails and you wouldn't want to get ...  more »

  • Maybe one of the best walks in the CRD. A nice relatively flat walk around both lakes a 10k loop, can be a little muddy etc in the winter but runners pretty much can do the job, enjoy!  more »

  • LOVE this park. The 10k trail around is perfect for a long walk. Playgrounds for kids. Swimming is good as long as there is no algae bloom. Dogs are generally off-leash and not allowed on the beach areas during certain months. Parts of the trail and fields can be really muddy. Lovely to see the horse riders. Bikes are restricted to certain (very few) areas. Canoes, kayaks, small boats and fishing can be great ways to enjoy these lakes.
  • Lovely place to walk or run. Some of the trails are a bit mucky with winter rains, but most is good. There were lots of runners, we watched rowing races on the lake and chatted with a local fisherman. Great place to go to with lots of parking.
  • It's a great place to hang out year round. In the summer you can cool off when it's hot and of course there's great fishing. If you have the time it's a fantastic place to hike around.
  • Lovely big park. All off leash. Fairly well kept trails for year round walking and running. Several entrances and parking areas.
  • Love this place. Small park for children. Ten km in walking trails around the lake. Very dog friendly. Lots of beautiful scenery. I go during the day and it doesn’t seem too bad. In the summer i don’t think you want to swim in this lake, but either way it’s a beautiful hike. Highly suggested. Easy walk. Good for the older generation.
