  • Beautiful lake view. I enjoy the garden path alive and well in October. Open space and trees are pretty amazing considering it's in the city. Only draw back no City views. However easier to get to than other city parks.
  • A nice park for going for a walk or run. It's definitely not big enough for anything but the most casual of rides, though. When I've visited I've found there to be ample parking around the park but this was probably at offpeak times and probably offpeak days.
  • Great park with plenty of opportunities to be active. There are trails for biking, running, or walking; lots of open grassy areas for volleyball or laying out and relaxing; as well as two lakes, tennis courts, gardens, horseshoe pits, lawn bowling, kids playgrounds, and a recreation center to enjoy.
  • Nice big park although it is beginning to suffer from its popularity! Definitely try and bike if you can to avoid the congestion from parking.
  • Always a good place to run year round. Pull up bars available. Huge open lawn area good fit frisbee, volleyball, etc.
