Love coming here in summertime, always something going on and/or to see. Great for meeting people of all ethnicities. Always taking visitors here, going for a stroll, eating icecream, enjoying nature amidst the city's hustle and bustle.

Many feature and attractions to see and do, especially in summer, there's Shakespeare by the Bow every summer, and a lot of Canada goose and different kinds of flowers. In winter there's also place to skate.
