  • Beautiful park to do lots of hiking. Bring your kids, pets and enjoy nature. Lots of birds for bird watching. The hiking trails are very nice. Bring your bathing suit and go for a cool dip under the falls. Lots of history in this park
  • Highly recommend stopping here if you're seeking a pit stop with children! Such a unique and massive play ground. There's even a splash pad in the summer (and public washrooms!)
  • This was my first trip back since I was a kid and it was terrific. Way more beautiful than I remember. Lots of new trails and walkways meandering through the ravine. It was the perfect Sunday afternoon stroll on a brisk autumn day.
  • This park is a great location. It has a playground, a pool,a sprinkler set-up for the kids. Excellent place located 5 minutes away from the shopping district. It has a waterfall where people can swim in the catch basin .
  • Excellent park with great amenities for all families and sports enthusiasts. Jacobs ladder, Holy Well, waterfalls and endless trails are just some of the great features of this well maintained park
