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.

Close to downtown and the Bay this is basically a gravel parking lot with many hook ups. Driving around the area we saw camping spots on a road in the trees with more privacy. Since it was just for nights with being gone all day it was fine. Could use more signs directing your way as it is indeed at... More
