Took three grandchildren to this place. They had a wonderful time. Play areas, splash pads and more. Room to kick around a soccer ball; lots of things to climb and play on. Enough trees to give you shade.

This is a lovely gem in the middle of Oak Ridges. Can't believe you're not somewhere up north. Worth the visit.

Lots to see and do for the whole family. Great boardwalk, splash pads and picnic area. You can even kayak or canoe here. Parking can be an issue and parking on the street isn't smart as they ticket.

I do not know (was not looking for it) Did notice that there was a club for various water activities. If you contact them they may be able to advise you accordingly.

Yes, many people do swim although it isn’t reccomended due to glass and bacteria in the water

Yes it is! There are sets of stairs in some areas but there is ways to get around them.
