This is a beautiful, large park. Lots of trails and areas to explore. I have been there a few times over the years. There are picnic areas with tables and fire pits to cook a meal.

Of course i love this place, i got engaged here! And I couldnt have picked a more beautiful spot to do it. The park is very well kept with excellent trails meandering through the trees and along the river. The views around the rivers bends are excellent with stunning backdrops and scenery. Thank you Fish Creek Park, thank you
