Great place to visit!

Only good on a good day of course because it's by the water. The park is quite large with lots of activities and equipment for children to play on.

Such a beautiful & serene place. We loved this place as we haven't seen ice fishing ever before. The competition had about 800 + participants. Also this happens on top of the frozen lake.

The park is located on the shores of Lake Simcoe and is within the city of Barrie Ontario. It is easily accessible from both #11 and #400 highways. It has lots of parking and a large playground area sponsored by the city service clubs.

I have taken my nephew to that park a few times and he always has so much fun! The park is clean, no garbage anywhere on the ground which is nice to see

Pretty good park, nothing outstanding or spectacular. The view and access to the water is nice and ice cream is close by. Picnic tables are available and there are shady spots. Parking lot is only free to residents.

The beach is clean and there always seems to be something new to do. Festival after festival year long. It's simply a fun day out on a boring day and day of events and entertainment during the many festivals.
