WATCH: Dragon boats on the lake at Scarborough's Peasholm Park

When the sun shines, there are few places more tranquil than Peasholm Park in Scarborough.

The park on the north side is free to enter. You can play a round of putting or take a boat out on the lake.

The park also has a cafe and an ice cream kiosk.

Watching the boats gives a whole new meaning to dragon boat racing – the pace is much slower.
