This is a popular place to have a stroll, see the lake and enjoy a nice view. The city has been upgrading the pier so is now wider and much better, you can enjoy the walk and seat in the park.

It's not the most amazing thing, but it's beautiful nonetheless and the view is lovely. There's nothing like the fresh water hitting against the rocks, and it's a really good place to watch a sunset or go on a walk.
