  • This park was a nice getaway from the city. This probably the only park in the world where you can walk freely amongst cows and sheeps. The views were great especially from the top. Be ready to hike!

  • The park was a very pleasant surprise to see in the city. There was so much space and a large variety of trees and flowers. Also fun to see the sheep and cows.

  • Love this place. So peaceful and calming. Always a lots of cars there but the park is so big you don't feel it is busy at all. The fact that you can walk amongst the cows and sheep puts a smile on my face every time. Love it
  • Cornwall Park is a gigantic public park for everyone. It has a cafe and a dedicated exercise area with few equipment. Endless beautiful walk trails with both open and dense lush green spaces. Ample parking and clean toilets. The best part is no matter how busy it gets, you will still find a space for you to do something interesting.
  • Love love love this gorgeous park! Very well kept with many walking trails and plenty of space for picnics or gatherings. Clean public restrooms. I especially love the many birds chirping throughout the park, and very much enjoyed seeing the beautiful cattle, sheep and roosters! The hike up to One Tree Hill was beautiful as well!
  • I call this the farm in the city. I love coming here to watch cows and sheep graze. They are released on pasture, fenced off. You don't have to worry about them passing their poop, or they blocking your passage. Sometimes I see some peacocks, chickens and even ducks come here. Halfway up the hill there is a cafe with a good view. There is a BBQ area, it's near the main parking lot of the park. Especially in winter there is a very beautiful magnolia garden and a cherry blossom path around October.
  • What a large area full of huge trees, beautiful flowers, and shady spots with cafes and toilets, and water fountains...this was my first time at Cornwall park and must return someday soon to soak it all on as a day isn't enough. Great maintenance...well done to the team behind this beautifully kept park for all to enjoy!
