We have a large natural sand beach with lots of play structures in the water for the kids to play on. Clean change house, shower and washroom facilities as well as an outdoor shower on the beach. There are no lifeguards on duty. We now have canoes, paddle boards, kayaks and pedal boars for rent. A new boardwalk is now in place for barrier free access from the store down to the waters edge.
We have several playgrounds available around the park for kids to enjoy including our new “circle project” that is a great attraction at our south end for kids and parents so be sure to check it out. We also have a kids program that runs all summer for kids from 5 – 12 where there is supervised activities each day, and it’s free!
Boating and Fishing
The lake is approximately 7 miles long and 1/2 mile wide. Recreational boating is very popular, whether it’s a pontoon boat out for a leisurely cruise, a speed boat pulling kids or a fishing boat trolling the shores, you can do it all here! Pike, pickerel and perch all inhabit the lake and fishing has been very good. Anglers will be impressed with our fish filleting station also! We have 2 boat launches, several docks and a new marina where you can rent a slip for a few days or the whole season.
This may be our best kept secret at the park! We have some of the best hiking/biking trails around. Carved through the trees along the valley overlooking the lake and the valley, it is a must do! Whether you only want to go for a short hike or a long one, you will see nature at its best here. The trails are wide, very well groomed with several rest stops and features that will keep you informed all along the way. New for 2016 is mountain bikes for rent. This is an excellent way to enjoy the trails time and time again.
You can’t miss out on our annual “Living Skies Come Alive” fireworks extravaganza every August Long weekend! It has become a MAJOR entertainment event attracting thousands of people each year to our park. It’s two nights of spectacular fireworks set to music and the valley backdrop, it’s a full weekend of activities for everyone.
