If I had to choose my favourite city park, Trout Lake would be my pick. From the willow trees to the beautiful little lake, it is a lovely place to while away a few hours. In the summer you can swim at the little beach at the south end or on Saturdays, head to the most popular farmer’s market in town. There’s an awesome newish playground by the community centre and big trees for climbing (if you dare!). Lots of options for fun in a natural setting for kids of all ages.
