  • This is a very clean and convenient park. With lots to do and see. Plenty of free parking and nice shady places for the perfect summer picnic.
  • Love this beach. A little rocky sand but can't complain for convenient location and availability. Also accessibility friendly.
  • Great location right by the lake and a quick trail to the mouth of the river where you can purchase the best french fries around, or set up your gear in the park for a day at beach. This park has lots of trails and trees, big open field for sports and games, lots of picnic tables to eat or read on. And a public animal farm to go with the family.
  • The park is beautiful and free. There's an animal farm, bmx bike trails, workout equipment, good washrooms and great picnic areas. The beach is really rocky though, so not great for swimming.
  • Fun to see the animals. Kids enjoyed feeding carrots and apples to the goats and lamas.
