Been coming here for long walks or cycling along the path. The park is clean and large for walks or cycling. The lake is calm and therapeutic to just sit and at the side and enjoy the cool breeze. Loved coming here in the evenings.

Great place for family or friends or just couples, you can have a BBQ here if you like too which is cool. It's a great park, a nice little walk.
