This lovely park has very enjoyable walks along the riverside and are always so lush, full of trees and plants... it's generally quiet, though it is frequented by uni students and people walking their dogs.

Lots of open space. In summers, on the rare sunny day, the park is filled with everyone. In winter, people fly down the snowy slopes. Every day, there are people running, dogs being walked, and people there for some fresh air. Some are afraid to...More

I come here often with my son - the park is perfect and I love the location. Bring a picnic blanket on sunny days as there are only a couple of picnic tables.

Went here for a nice Sunday stroll and the park is beautiful, much larger that it appears to be and the views at the top of the hill are amazing.
