It's easily accessible and usually there is ample parking. In the summer the sunken gardens have beautiful flowers band it's a great place for families to throw a ball around or even a picnic on the grass

On the aptly named High Street, this park is dedicated to the Lake Superior Regiment. It provides good views over the city, out to the lake including the Sleeping Giant and Mount McKay.
