Tue 24 May 2011
Positives: competive rates, on the river (stay away from the field lots), clean, well stocked store, close to the city
Negatives: Old steel playground was the cause of some injuries,
Comments: Clean, clean, clean. Stayed a few nights as it was recommended to us. Private lots along the river or field lots, in-ground heated pool, new showers and washrooms. There was always someone cleaning washrooms and showers, some dirt in shower area but they at least try to keep up.
