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.

I was pleasantly surprised to find these rugged trails in the middle of an urban area. I was expecting a few paved pathways, but instead there were real trails with beautiful views. I could have done without the mud as other people mentioned, but it makes for an interesting hike. Although it's easy to follow the trails, they are not... More

I have tried to walk these trails summer, spring , winter and fall. The boardwalk is fine but it isn't that long and makes for a very short walk. To really walk you need to get on the trails. The problem is most of the year they are very wet and muddy and mosquitoes galore. The trails are not well... More

Incredible trails for walking, hiking, biking or dog walking. Lots of wildlife, foliage, water wildlife and an amazing number of different locations and things to see. Ponds offer a beautiful ecosystem of impressive things to see. Been here dozens of times and never walked the same path twice. Be ready for bugs and make sure you start out with enough... More

It is a great place for golf, although we don't play, We did play mini-putt that was only partially open. There was a huge water slide, also not open. Our 4 yr. old grandson played in the Jungle Gym. You only pay for the things you do and no entry fee, which was nice for those of us just watching... More

It is nice to see the Wild life, coyotes, wild Turkeys and the Deer, and not have to travel out... More

This spot is wonderful in the winter if you want to brave the cold and go and be in very natural settings quite in the heart of the city yet! Great ski trails and some people were snowshoeing. Dress warmly though as large open areas can be quite windblown and cold.

The Ponds are such a beautiful spot to take in nature. It's hard to believe you are in the heart of the city while walking under those tall trees and passing the wildlife of the ponds. Beautiful spot for a hike and quiet reflection. One of London's best kept secrets.

To me I would list it but to be seen if there spare time and if you are not a nature lover don't even think about it.
