+ Why we love it

This beautiful, mature park is centrally located, and has lots to do. There's a splash park, duck pond, playground, skateboard park, tennis and football fields, washrooms, large trees for shady picnics, a Japanese garden, baordwalk through the trees, and more. We love that the playground is accessible, and suitable for children with limited mobility. It's also walking distance to Diner on Six, Tim Hortons, Starbucks, A&W, Earl's, Wrapzone and Booster Juice.

+ Parking

Parking lot spots are generally easy to find inside the park as long as there are no events happening. To park closest to the playground and splash pad, head to the south end of the soccer field. FREE
