This park is great for a picnic, or just a good walk, as it is adjacent to the Salmon creek trail. If you park in the main parking lot, there is a fee, so come prepared.

It is now $3 to enter, but has a lot to offer. There's a long paved walk/hike in the nature, a small play structure, some water fountains for kids to run in, and a swimming place.

I always think what could be in Vancouver and then I stumble upon this park on the way to the doctors office. A wonderful neighborhood and a picturesque area with a pond. Areas for picnics, bird watching and strolling trails.
