I hike a loop (about three miles) here at least once a week. Once you are about five minutes in and away from the traffic sounds of Wellington/Southdale, you completely forget that you are in the city. The area is heavily wooded with beautiful views...More

Went today with a friend. We were a little concerned about the trails not being very clear because of the snow, but all the way there are yellow marks on the trees to guide you. The lady on the information centre is very kind and...More

Although a wonderful summer spot, this green space park has ideal winter snowshoeing and cross country skiing trails! Parking is free of cost. There is a small visitor's center with washrooms. Trails are very natural; but, not particularly groomed nor supervised.

This is a lovely area to hike and explore throughout the year. The path takes you through the woods and around the ponds making it difficult to believe you are still in the city.

Came here for a conference at the lamp lighter Best Western. This park is almost right across the street. You can access it from either the tourist centre or beside the hospital. A bit of the trails are currently under reconstruction so they are walkable,...More

This is a depressing place. The paths are NOT marked other than with a blaze of yellow paint on trees. No other colour. No signage. You cannot tell where you are. There are many snake-like tree roots (not to mention snakes!) on the foot paths...More

It's a beautiful park area, the site of a rehab center for Vets, now no longer in use. The old 'barrack' foundations are there as well as the old hospital, sadly in disrepair. Pity it can't be restored. We go for walks while waiting for...More
