We very much enjoyed walking to the top of the little lighthouse in the park. We also watched a group of teens learning to sail while we relaxed by the water.

Went to see the light house . Which was amazing for a little one . Great views and plenty of stuff for the little ones . If I were still a child it would be the best park ever . Lots of walking bridges .

Enjoyed a quick visit here with a nice walk along the lake. The ice was breaking up and the gulls were out having a grand time.
