What you need to know 

Please be respectful and courteous of other park users and use our parks, trails and public spaces responsibly:

  • Canoes, kayaks and paddleboards are allowed with access to launch from the boat launch and beach area.
  • Take up only the space you need in the park. You may arrive early and have lots of space to set up but please be courteous and leave room for others. 
  • Picnic tables are first-come, first served. Please note that when gathering outdoors you still need to maintain a physical distance of 2 meters apart from one another when standing or sitting, unless you are from the same household. Group picnic areas are currently not available to book.
