  • You'd never know this lake would be waiting for you as you drive up a steep hill at the edge of a busy city. It's a great place to take kids to swim, very family oriented. There are washrooms and a tr...  more »

  • 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.
  • Beautiful...wish the beach was bigger...nice hikes...watch ur children close water gets deep fast...read up on history...allegedly a farm house at the bottom of the lake..quite interesting
  • 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.
  • Had fun even in the rain! But the bus doesn't go all the way in which could be a problem with a child and in the rain lol
  • Great location for swimming on a hot summer day. The walking trail is also great.
