Nice place to walk

Great open space to take a walk. Great place to also go for a hike. Mid it was warmer we would have enjoyed a nice picnic there. Place was very well maintained too.

The largest urban park in Canada. So much to do. See the ducks, go for a hike, sleigh rides, swimming, skating, and mmm LIly's Cafe. Looking forward to eating at the golf course when Britt's takes over the restaurant later this year. Love love love their food.

I have been snowshoeing in Rockwood Park this winter and discovering fabulous new trails that I never attempted in the summer. It's a great park, with so many trail choices and difficulty levels. I had been going to the Irving Nature Park, which is wonderful too, but it's nice to have another choice so close to everything.

Rockwood Park has great scenery, roads, hiking, and cycling trails. Great for bird enthusiasts and chance to see deer, squirrel, and other animals. Great duck pond where hardy ones stay all winter seeking food through the few holes in the ice. In the summer the Fisher Lakes are great for swimming or just relaxing on the beach. All of this...

On Remembrance Day,my daughters, niece, sister-in-law and I took my granddaughter and great niece to the park. It was lovely and surprising warm day and we spent several hours walking the trails, playing in the playground and feeding the horses. The children especially liked feeding the ducks and the look on their faces was priceless! :D

The park is excellent for all kinds of activities, from walking , swimming, biking, or just being out enjoying the nature, it has it all, right down to picking blueberries. It is nice and quiet, hard to believe it is in the middle of a city. Just an awesome place.
