We walked through the park on several occasions, including at night. It was always beautiful, peaceful, and a joy to stroll through. The views of the lake, the magnificent trees, the swans and ducks on the lake, all perfect. Quite lovely.

The park is quite large with lake front walking, lawns and a small beach. At the end of the park three is a large playground for kids. There was sections for both our 2 and 5 years old kids.
