A trip to I Heart Coffee is complimented with a picnic in one of Lac du Bonnet’s Parks. Sit back and enjoy your lunch in the company of your friends and family at Leslie Park, Memorial Park, or Lakeside Park. Each of these parks offers something unique to enjoy, be it the excellent waterside view at Lakeside, the accessible playground structure at Leslie, or the War Memorial at Memorial Park.
Enjoy the best of both worlds with ample shallow, calm water for your little ones to splash around while more experienced swimmers take in the deep end and enjoy an afternoon of diving off the dock, or jumping from the floating platform. With your safety in mind, lifeguards are on duty daily.
If swimming isn’t your cup of tea, the dock is an excellent place for shore-side fishing in Lac du Bonnet. You’ll need to grab a spot at the end of the dock and get your line ready to reel in Northers, Small Mouth Bass, or Walleye.
Grab dinner at Chicken Chef, located at 44 McArthur Avenue, before you head home for the night.
