This 300 hectare park includes a creek, a scenic lookout, hilly terrain with mixed forest, and nature preserve for flora and fauna. Its recreational opportunities include: trails and boardwalk for a hike, a relaxing walk, and snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the winter, an off-leash dog park, an arboretum and native pollinator garden, and Discovery Play Garden for kids and the young at heart.
