  • Great place to see wonderful nature, trees, marshes, beach front, creeks, woods, and so on. Good place for a swim, camping, picnics and events. I was able to take many great photos here.
  • Nature at its best. Great place for walks....serenity. Well maintaindd.
  • Pretty good for its location, the splash pads are ideal for any age and swim abilities. Did not try the fenced in pool. If you can bring your own umbrella for shade, and own sitting or lounge items, along with snacks and drinks. Careful under the trees we ended up in an area with small biting red ants and they were mean.
  • Arrived in a hot day of September with 30 degC to find out the pool closes after the labor's day! Entrance fee per person in the car is a rip off! You can walk in or get in with your bicycle free of charge but if you're 5 people in the car you have to pay 5 times 5.75 plus HST ($33!!)! No lake access , good spot for picnic or biking with great view but if you have a big family then it is gonna cost you more just to get in. And then pay again per person for the pool(if it is open)! Get the people walk past the gate or use the trail entrance while you drive by yourself. 5.75 seems reasonable for parking but per person doesn't make sense at all, unless you're planning to feed them by lawn!
  • Let me start off by saying I don't like the fact that I have to pay a per person fee to enter the conservation area and pay again to enter the pool area. Paying the entrance fee is nothing more than a glorified parking fee. 🙁 With that said, my family loves this place. For the pool fee ( which is about the same as the community center), you can stay for 1 hour or the whole day ( until they close, around 9pm). As long as you have your wrist band/receipt you can leave, get lunch and return. Big pool for big kids or adults, 3 wading pools for the little ones and a splash pad with a nice size slide. On a hot day it gets busy but most people are well behaved, so everyone can enjoy.
