Park
“It's a very nice park with an archery range, nature center, several lakes for fishing, numerous play parks, loads of BBQ areas, covered picnic areas, and miles of walking trails. Lovely park with golf, tennis etc but great for walkers and runners who want that bit of exercise while on business or vacation”

Store
“Cauldron Ice Cream was started out of a garage in Orange County, California back in 2014. Its very first location was in South Coast Metro on the outskirts of the sprawling Costa Mesa food hub. Since then, Cauldron has expanded to over 10 locations and its first international location opened 2018 in Toronto! We make homemade, all natural ice cream in small batches. Our flavors are inspired by our community, travels, family, and friends. We rotate and create new flavors every quarter to ensure you never get bored. Check back often for menu updates! Hope to see you soon!”
