Beautiful area regardless of the time of year. Lots of places to sit down and take in the view with a cafe at the entrance and a food cabin halfway round. Kids loved scooting and cycling on the path and the totem pole.

This place is really nice. Well preserved and well maintained. Very refreshing. Not far from where we live so we are going to come back again to explore more.
