Nice spot for a family picnic. Please remember the mozzie repellent - it is near a standing bidy of water.

If you want a place to go and just take in the peace and quiet, then this might be up your alley. Clean (away from the road though) green and totally serene. Do yourself a favour.

Answer is NO. Dogs to remain on leash, or leave dogs at home. I'd like to see this rare opportunity to allow dogs in a place like this, to not be ruined by others that do not follow the signs at entrance.
