This little gem was featured on 'you've gotta eat here'. And you certainly should check it out. Portions are very large, so come hungry or prepared to take home leftovers. Often a good place to book reservations, or have some patience to wait for a table.

Parks & Nature
Beautiful park with a winding stream and small reservoir. There are many access points as the trans-Canada trail runs through this park, however the heart of the park is basically where the pin is dropped on the map. Many loops of varying lengths and dog/bike/jogger friendly.
