  • Small, but it's a decent location to take some great sunrise shots. The beach is covered with red rock broken pottery pipe.  more »
  • Probably the most enjoyable area of Port Credit for a nice digestive walk. Obviously you need a nice sunny day  more »
  • Great park for families - make sure you get there early to get a good spot - it gets busy really quick.  more »
  • It's a great place to have a picnic or take a short stroll to the lake. There's lots of interesting things to see and read about. It's also great to take kids to what with the splash pad and play ground. It's a busy place on the weekends and in the evenings when the weather is nice so get there early.
  • It is a nice place to visit for couple of hours . There is a lot to be done to make the place more attractive and point of attraction .
  • This review for the Off Leash Dog park only. Originally a 3 star rating, I’ve bumped it up to 4 now. I thought it was best for large dogs because my medium sized dog was overwhelmed by the number of larger dogs which sometimes run around in groups. Now I’ve seen the light and realize it was my dog and I lack of inexperience which impacted my review . I can now say we feel very comfortable with the large dogs the park attracts. They will play with my dog now and put him in his place when necessary, they don’t bite only bark. I was also not a big fan of dog walkers bringing their packs with them however I now like it because the dogs quickly figure out who wants to play and who doesn’t. So the more dogs the better. The down side is that’s it’s a fairly wide open, flat, area with little shade. For something much more like a hike/walk, drive over to Jack Darling which is ~5 minutes away. J.D. also has a park for small dogs; after going to the parks for a number of months now I that section is likely best for puppies under a year old. I see lots of small dogs At Lakeside with big dogs and I really haven’t seen any issues.
  • Nice quiet place on the lake complete with an off leash park.
  • Great park. Right beside the lake BUT unfortunately there are a lot of families there who leave their little kids run crazy without supervision. One little boy hit my niece because she didn’t want to play with him. I had to yell at that kid because he kept following our daughters and nieces and they had no interest in playing with him. His parents were nowhere to be found even after I made a scene yelling at him and asking where his parents are. This kid was 2 years old....sans supervision.
