I have visited Coyote-Hellyer Park three times already and it really is a lovely place. The best time is in the morning. The paved trail can be used for walking, skating, or riding a bike. The lake is beautiful at night. I give it 3 stars because of how people behave in the park. Parents let their very, very young children wander on their own in the trail without adult supervision and without any safety precautions (ie: helmets). Many people use the park to have parties & BBQ (which is fun and OK to do) BUT they leave a mess behind and don't teach their children to pick up after themselves. People also feed the ducks and geese even though there are postings asking NOT to feed them. Best time is during the week or early in the morning on weekends before the crowd gets in.
