You'd never even know this is here from driving by. But just off busy Wellington St. is a lovely nature walk in around this set of ponds. There are plenty of interpretive signs and the walks vary from amibitious to leisurely. The path is well marked and level.

We go to Westminster Ponds a few times every year. It's a great place to visit when he need to escape the craziness of urban life. Everything slows down. You can enjoy the natural surroundings. The traffic noise almost fades away. And wildlife is still visible. It's a real gem.

It was just beautiful, quiet & buggy :-/ But we sat & had a picnic just before sunset. But once the sun went down all the bugs started to come at us so we ended up leaving. But would love to visit again!

A surprisingly quiet retreat in the middle of the city. A great place to take the dog, kids, and camera. It's quite large, so be careful I ended up lost and using GPS to get back to the car.

I love walking through the ponds and trails with my children. It is a great place of relaxation, tranquility, and nature all hidden inside an urban city landscape.

...as many people have commented, trails are poorly marked. It's ok if you have all day to hike around but if you only have a few hours to blow this may not be the best location. My wife and I found that we thought we were on the right track but eventually got a little lost and ended up repeating... More

Tonnes of space to walk around in ... your dog will love you forever if you take them there. WATCH OUT FOR SKUNKS THOUGH as they are prevalent in this area.
