  • It's a very beautiful place, great for hiking or walks or hanging out with friends and family. Good place for a picnic or a photo shoot. This might sound weird to some people, but to me the area really reminded me of fantasy fiction. Keep this place clean!
  • Such a lovely and beautiful place to visit, especially in the summer when everything is green and the sun is out. Some very beautiful sights to see and the peaceful atmosphere is a lovely city escape. Also features a lovely hike which isn't too long and takes about 30-60 minutes depending on your speed.
  • Great oasis in the middle of farm land and fields. Location is also used for geocaching. Gorgeous waterfalls start the counterclockwise loop going over the hill with a switchback on the other side
  • This is small but BIG green park with a small clean river and great place for BBQ and whole family. I love it!
  • This is a gem of little provincial parks! It is perfect for a family hike and picnic, complete with a natural wading pool for the kids. There are no BarBQs or fire pits, but still great for a picnic lunch!
