Couchiching Park is a lovely park for a city the size of Orillia. It is large with a playground, beach, picnic areas, concessions, kids' train, boat ramps, marina, band shell, and pretty gardens.

A lovely, peaceful walk along the jetty and back through the park. Separate paths for pedestrians and for cyclists, etc. Historic spots. Flat walking. Very pleasant. Lots of squirrels.

No open cooking right on the beach, but there are picnic tables all around where you can. There is even a covered gazebo where you can BBQ.
