Great winter activities including walking and skating trails on the ice with unique warming huts. There was an outdoor curling/crocinole 'board'. Outdoor fires.

Large and beautiful park. Two museums are there, lots of walking paths, skating and snow fun for all in the winter. There was an amazing ice castle when we were there. Shops and restaurants are adjacent.
