  • Better in the winter than the summer. In the winter you can skate on the pond, which rocks! There is also a huge bonfire to warm yourself. Summer time, you can rent a canoe or paddleboat, which is fun, but the Canadian geese poop all over the place and unless you watch very carefully where you are going, you will end up with a nasty green mess all over your shoe!
  • Always lots going on at Bower ponds in wintertime you can rent skates and summertime you can rent paddle boats. Parking can be a bit of an issue
  • Excellent park that you feel safe wandering during the day. Amazing views.
  • Super awesome and quite place to spend with family especially in Summer time
  • I really enjoyed walking in his park beautiful place
