  • They have a very decent house red house wine and a very good tea. Always nice to sit anywhere at Malone's. Fantastic view and very good service.
  • Great place, great scenery. Food at Mexi's was ok, salad was tasteless but veggie burrito was awesome. It was way too warm inside and parking was inconvenient.
  • I have been skating here and rented a canoe in the summer. It's really fun and a great way to feel like you're out of the city.
  • Had a great time with my kids and a friend with his. We rented 2 kids kayak and 1 canoe.
  • I did not use the Pavillion, went there for the Tulip festival across the street. But the view of Dows Lake is amazing and many people were using kayaks, paddle, looked like a lot of fun.
