This park is a delightful place to spend a summer afternoon whether you are looking for a beautiful picnic place, a scenic river/lakeside stroll or, as I did, a safe paved cycling trail. Fairy "Lake" is created by the daming of the East Holland River....More

Out for an early dinner on Main Street and needed to walk off the great food and young peoples' energy. Nice walk along the water and eventually arrived at the kids activity park. Even had a port-a-potty available!
