  • It's generally not dirty or gross! It's picturesque and a stunning blue most days. It's good for swimming, just watch the signs for water quality and if there are issues with undertow.
  • I kind of find it funny that I am reviewing the lake but it is quite a nice place to swim in during the summer because it can be freezing cold even when it’s scalding hot outside but I gave it four stars because if you go to places like coronation park in Oakville and you go by the water it is hard to find a more revolting smell then the lake it is truly nasty although it can be beautiful in the morning when the sun comes through the clouds and reflects off the water but it has its ups and downs but you can still go swimming in it it’s safe to a point just don’t drink the water and fishing is pretty good there as well depending on how far you go out
