  • Very beautiful natural scenery. A nice place to take a contemplative walk or relaxing walk with a dear one. It is difficult to find parking, though.
  • Very spacious and lovely park. We had a family picnic here with other families and it was a great outing. Rideau river runs by the park where kids can feed some swans/ducks.
  • It is well located and the is a lot of seating area's. The park is well maintained also the new crossing bridge makes it accessible to more people without the need of public transportation and car.
  • Love it, peaceful yet busy enough to get the city wibe. For kids it's perfect, has a playground and enough wild life to keep them busy
  • Nice park. Especially like the large fountain at the top of the step hill. Nice bride across the river as well.
