Take a walk, jog, bike ride. Softball fields. Go to administration building and rent a grove. Special built bike park with hills. Beautiful lake to fish or kayak.

We come here often. In the winter months it’s mostly to eat at the OTB restaurant. But when the weather warms up we like to canoe/kayak, fish and walk. Nice scenic park!

A very nice park centered around a lake. There are walking and biking areas and it seems safe. The police patrol the area regularly. Many picnic groves, bathrooms, swimming pool, play areas and fishing, with a license of course.
