  • Beautiful world-class paddling facility. Race here every year for Canadian dragon boat nationals.
  • Spent a day ice fishing there and dident catch anything much. But getting out on the ice there is easy.
  • Beautiful views and nice place to hold wedding reception or other event for groups.
  • Great place to check out on the weekends if you like to watch rowing and other flat water events. You can even rent this place as a hall! Go check it out if you haven't seen it.
  • Peaceful...when not busy of course. Dragon boat racing is a great experience. Nice upgrades with the stadium addition. Dog park is cool too.
