  • Great park. HUGE leash free dog park, great picnic areas, toboganing in the winter, nice walking trails. Could use more parking. City loves to ticket on long weekends when it is super busy, so park on Lorne Park and do the 5 min walk instead.
  • We enjoyed Jack Daring summer, and often come in the morning to watch the sunrise, and sunset came,, very interesting because it's so beautiful My sister and I came back Jack fall in love in the middle, then it began to cool in the twilight, the sun is slowly disappearing, then we sat drinking cold coffee on the platform stone, Jack Darling at night so that many birds We sink into the beauty of nature Thy Truc
  • I have been coming to JDP for three decades now and there's something for everyone regardless of your age and activities. Our dogs love the leash free park, my nieces and nephews love the waterpark, my brother loves to run along the trails. There are three beach areas and one we call pebble beach because instead of sand it has pebbles. The Rattray Marsh is there for those that love nature...This is a beautiful park and there's a lot to love!
  • One of my favourite GTA parks perfectly located by the Lake Ontario with the large forested area. Boardwalks are all over the park making the trails easy and enjoyable. Park has few small beaches, lots of picnic areas and parking.
  • Great leash free park with easy access to the lake and surrounding area. Very large and very accessible, always a pleasure to come here.
