  • 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 »
  • The city nearby, is a very pleasant city with many places of interests and one of the best global visitors destination - yet its people do come to swim and walk and be with nature which is still sligh...  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.
  • 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.
  • Go with the family regularly during the warmer months for walks and swimming. Both spots are easily accessible and have public restrooms close to the parking lots. Beautiful trail system and warm water in the summer to swim in. Our 2 year old loves playing in the sand and swimming here.
  • nice areas to run your dog unleashed...visited by many other dog owners. The lake has a blue algae that could make your dog ill if consumed. Lots of joggers and bikes. Good fun for all ages.
  • Possible the best dog walking park in the city. Many kms of trails around the two lakes. Great place to socialize your dog with other dogs. Lots of joggers.
