I live near the ponds and we have spent many days here. We have done some geocaching with friends here (always fun). I used to pick my daughter up from school at lunch time and we would have a picnic here. Sometimes the family will just go for a walk along the trails. Wonderful relaxing area.

After a fresh snow, I thought I would bring out my snowshoes and head to Westminster Ponds. I had never been there and didn't really know what to expect. What a beautiful area! I spent a couple hours exploring the different paths while taking in the beauty of winter. I do agree that the paths could be marked better since... More

Lovely wooded park surrounding 3 large ponds/ small lakes in South end of London. Trails sufficient for an hour or two of walking or 40+ min run ( some creativity required to connect smaller loops of trail).

Will revisit but bring water with us next time. Did not realize what a big area it covered? Only thing we found a problem was some people with dogs unleashed. Overall a great experience.

Spent two hours walk the trails about Saunders Pond and Tumbleson Pond within the area. Unlike some other reviewers, I found the trails well marked with yellow patches on trees. A current map is available from the Tourist INformation centre at the entrance off Wellington. The trails are earth or boardwalk so can be muddy but were mostly dry when... More

If you bring your dog with you to the ponds, beware of unleashed dogs. I have seen 3 dobermans several times with no owner in site. How unfair to the rest of us! Also the signage is really bad, so bring your GPS.

Nice to find this type of trail inside the city. Short loops or long ones, woods, water or picnic. Lots of options.

Great trails and wildlife to see. Coyotes, deer and all other sorts of wildlife are to be found here. interesting ponds covered in algae in warmer seasons make this place very interesting. Would recommend for a photo shoot etc.....
