  • The tennis courts are nice. Well maintained, with a good surface. There is good drainage no puddles, they do take a while to dry because of the abundant shade, but the shade is nice in the summer too. The dick pond is fun for a bit of photography, but bring a fast lens, because again, lots of shade.
  • Great community park with pool, river, wildlife, picnic shelter, sports courts and a whole lot more. From a peaceful walk to the duck pond for the family to the ideal place to pop the question and photos. Bowen Park is located minutes from downtown and adjacent to neighbourhoods. Paved and dirt parking. Washrooms and frisbee golf available. More to tell, but see for yourself. Please keep all pets on leash at all times.
  • The duck pond is great. A large bag of chicken scratch from Buckerfields costs $1.65. A fun and inexpensive day for the kids.
  • This is a beautiful area full of trails and natural landscapes that allow for great photography or even just a nice place to wander about with loved ones. You can explore many different areas with Volley Ball, Basketball, tennis, Frisbee Golf and even swimming areas set up. All that said this is a very different place at night.
  • Beautiful park. Was there in September a saw the falls and went back in January and really saw the falls. what power a few months make. Spectacular.
