  • Great place to walk the dog! Paved paths encourage wheeled patrons, but in my experience everyone is super polite and the right-of-way is respected. Excellent if you need somewhere to show off your...

  • My brother and I can walk around anytime through the day or night all year round. It's a nice area to visit. We got to see the boats, that people own on the dock. They do have restaurant called Williams Fresh Cafe. They also have outdoor roller skating and ice skating. They have a hut, where you can buy fast food and beverages. In the evening, we got to see the reflection of the sun on the lake, that was beautiful to see. They do have telescopes, we can look through to get a closer look. I always check their website to see what else they have for us to do and see. They do have a free Parking Lot with Wheelchair Accessible Parking Lots. They do have Washrooms and Wheelchair Accessible Entrances.
  • Best place to visiting for an evening walk. Sunset adds to the beauty of this place. It’s sad to see that the beach is closed here it could have been the cherry on top. Still a lot of action going around like kayaks, jet ski, fishing , cycling , jogging and more.
  • This park is beautiful and had a really good time with my family. We initially came here to have a barbecue and weren’t aware if we were allowed or not. So I asked a police officer and he said “Today is a beautiful day, go live a little”. After hearing that, we started barbecuing and no one stopped us or told us we couldn’t. This park also has lots of room to play certain things, we played badminton and frisbee and it was really enjoyable. The views of the lake were gorgeous and highly recommend to stay here for sunset. We also got caught in an intense thunderstorm which was definitely an experience
  • Great place for a picnic, walking and time spending. Very pleasant area. We been here for a picnic and had a wonderful family time. Small water beach is closed. Boat launch area will be full and it will be beautiful view for eyes. Great place and we are visiting again and again as we live in Hamilton. Cherry blossom trees are very beautiful when they are peak bloom.
  • Great place for picnic, fishing and walk. A lot of shade places under the trees. Small beach area but it’s closed for now. Washrooms are not clean at all.
