  • This is busy place. Free access. Went on a Thursday morning in August and there were a lot of families already there. Not a lot of picnic tables, but space for a blanket. Peddle boats for rent.....  more »

  • Very nice park. Went to Setters Place to watch speed skating for Canada winter Games. Brand new speed skating oval that is awesome. Public skating available as well as speed skating. Doubles as a football field in the summer. Great indoor viewing area. Nice change rooms. Outdoor ponds where you can skate too. Rest of the park is great too. Situated right along the river so it's a beautiful location.
  • Been here. A good place for picnics during summer. You can also do boating in the ponds. Lots of activities. You can also go trail walking, bicycle riding, etc. In winter you can do ice skating and lots of fun activities in the winter. Good place or kids and families to hang out.
