This summer fall in love with your neighbourhood all over again!

So grab your sunglasses (and sunscreen) and head outside for some good summer fun.
Grab your family, pack some snacks and head over to the beach at Lakeview Park. On a nice sunny day during the summer, the east beach at Lakeview Park is a perfect place to have fun with your family or friends. Parents can have some relaxation time while their kids build sandcastles. Or you can always work on that summer tan.
