Wright Brothers Park consists of large spaces of lush green grass and trees, which provide a great place for holding picnics as well as engaging in many outdoor activities with friends and family. The park was originally named Spring Gardens Park but in the late 2000s it was renamed to its current name. The park is located on a small cliff and provides a stunning view of the lake. There are many benches, dedicated to deceased people, where visitors can sit and enjoy perfect views of the lake. A metal staircase allows people to go down towards the water, where they can sit on rocks and relax, while water brushes across their feet. Swimming is also allowed in the water, which can provide visitors with another dimension of enjoyment with their loved ones. The beautiful landscape of this location make it an ideal fit for families to come and have an enjoybale time.

Wright Brothers Park is one of several environmentally protected areas in Canada. The park is found in close proximity to residential areas and therefore, regulations have been put in place to ensure the conservation of the park. The park is conserved so that no new development affects the state of the park and that the park is left in it's natural state as much as possible. The lush green grass and bright flowers are one of the attractive factors of this location. To preserve the state of these plants only natural fertilizers are used in this park, which also makes it safer for the visitors.
