  • Stay away and don't tell anyone. I want to keep it all for myself. You could spend a whole day here if you bring your own food. Great walking trails and beautiful water to cool off in afterwards.
  • Lovely location for a 45 minute outdoor adventure hiking up and down easy trails or going for a more intense run. The trails around the lake amount to just over 6km and are accessible by mountain bikes, although street bikes could easily do it too. For those not interested in cardio there's also a swimming area, fishing dock, and children's play park.
  • Great location for swimming on a hot summer day. The walking trail is also great.
  • I LOVE jogging around here. Everyone is friendly and 6km is absolutely doable.
  • My favorite place to swim or walk (or cycle) around the lake. Life guards on duty in summer until 6pm.
