  • Nice place to connect with nature close to the city. Very relaxing. Great for SUP specially if you are just learning 😊 you can bring your own equipment or rent it there, prices are very reasonable. This is also a great place to go for a hike. Love bringing my dogs here specially in the summer as they love walking trough it. Dogs are not allowed on the beach but they can be everywhere else. Place is clean, too bad they had an algae problem last season. Hopefully next year is better so we can enjoy it for a longer time.
  • Kelso conservation area is a really good place to hang out with kids in summer it is like a little retreat in the middle of the city. My kids love to hang out there during summer small clean beach shallow waters with life guards. Boat rental at reasonable price where you could spend a good one hour paddle boating or kayaking. The trails are good if you intend to go for a hike.
  • Great place to camp with a large group of youths. Nice washroom and shower facility. Perfect hiking trails with mix of difficulty. Kelso Lake is fabulous for those who never canoe before.
  • Went to Glen Eden for snowboarding all day on a Monday. The snow was good, a bit icy at the end of the day but the runs were open. My only negatives are all out of control of the park: the runs are short, sometimes other skiers/ boarders are rude and for some reason don't give you space. Disconcerting for a novice. Overall, it's a cute little hill on the escarpment. If you can drive to Collingwood, do that instead.
  • Well I'm trying to be level headed while writing this for I am still very upset about the experience I had here on Monday. It seems like this beach has many visitors who are disrespectful, rude and no qualms about leering at underage girls in bathing suits! Being their culture to blame I don't know... possibly. So mother's and fathers of daughter's be weary before letting your child or teen go here! Quite disgusted at what I saw and also experienced, one group of young teens actually left after the pack of guys were licking their lips and making disgusting jester's at them. I tried to intervene since they did not have parents there and they didn't seem to speak English or just acted like they didn't for as I walked away they made lewd comments about my "assets". I didn't realize I had to cover my whole body while trying to enjoy a day with my family here or else suffer the stares of gross, sexually aggressive and objectifying "guys". Mind you, these 'guys" were 35-60 years old with a large group of family but I dare not call them men for real men would not act like that! I wish the park employees would do something about this indecent behavior but I guess they don't expect to tell grown guys how to act decently. Besides this awful experience the beach has not changed much, still gravel like sand and murky water that leaves you feeling like you need to go shower asap. Will not be returning.
