Flute Lane Park

Seven rock covered concrete steps lead to the lower grass covered area along the shore. A short dock from the shoreline connects to the concrete wharf to provide access to deeper water. The beach is a small gravel and grass area about ten meters long. It would be possible to launch a personal water craft from the beach. At the moment, dogs are allowed in this park in the winter months. The Ed Nixon Trail, along Leigh Road, passes beside this park.
