The Park is well groomed and kept immaculately clean. I thoroughly enjoyed the drive up the hill, and several stops to just admire the view and the scenery of the area.

When I was a child living in Canso, my family and I would visit this park every weekend. Very well groomed location with ample BBQ pits, bathroom and fresh water. Being on the water makes this park a wonder family location.
