Nice place

Nice place but gets very busy. This little lake has a walking trail all the way around it. A park for the kids and plenty of room for a picnic.

Peaceful during the week, paths can be crowded on sunny warm weekends. I also don't like to stroll through there during special events as it can be very congested.

We walk here often - you can be alone or in a group and enjoy this park, any season! It is naturalized without being too difficult easy and spacious for wheelchairs, strollers, bikes dogs and children. The new playground is nicely situated we have more trees ti give shade and interesting stops with information about locals and our First Nations... More

Nature in the city... get out get some fresh air and enjoy nature. Walk up one side of the river and down the other. Full circle.

Small little lake in the heart of downtown Newmarket where you can go for a nice walk. In Summer, hit the Farmers Market. Shop and dine along Main Street any time of the year as some good restaurants.

A great place to take a leisurely stroll around the small lake . Feed the ducks and geese or just sit on a bench and take in the view of the park.

Great park with lots of festivals and concerts throughout the year. There's also a very nice playground for the children. During the summer, there a weekly concerts that take place at the band shelter, and the music resonates throughout the entire park. Such a great place to spend he afternoon or evening!

Lots of benches to sit and enjoy the scenery. Great for biking and strolling. Many trees to keep you cool on a warm day. Lots of ducks and geese to entertain you.
