There are also a number of streams and smaller ponds throughout the park, the largest just below the viewing platform.

    It was great. I went there as a school trip. There is a tdsb thingy there and there were many fun activities and good people there. The food is also good. The tdsb thingy isn't open to the public sadly but, if your school is going there I recommend it. The park is nice. Nice scenery. Went on a hike. Best thing that happened to me other than anime.

    Other than a short hike, there's not much else to do or see, not much wildlife in the park either. If you have horses, I can see the appeal as you can take them into the park, otherwise, there's better parks

    Lots of looped trail options. Lots of trails welcome bikes. Lots of features like cliffs, rocky terrain, orchards, ponds, streams. Lots of loops have connecting trails as well. Outhouses available on one trail too is nice but bring your own toilet paper just in case.
