nice solitude walking place inside town

good walking trails inside London makes you forget where you are - well maintained just be careful after it rains as it can get muddy

Westminster Ponds has many different trails and ponds and is a great place for bird watching and looking for wildlife. There are hundreds of plant species. You can walk for hours and hours through Westminster Ponds.

I always love going there. Nice trails, breathtaking in every season. I love the winter walks especially, because not too busy.

Despite this natural space being in the middle of the city, when you step into the forest, the sounds of the city fade away. There are nicely maintained paths and views of two large ponds. If you access from behind the hospital, you can get to a quaint observation dock on one of them, which is always a favourite for... More

Had the experience of visiting this hidden hideaway just recently. Full of wildlife, (snakes included) fall colours, fallen leaves, and beautiful scenery. Would recommend for outdoor enthusiasts!

Found this little gem the other day and spent a good hour walking the dog and taking in the sights. Lovely place for some quiet time. Great selection of birds in the area too.

My daughter had a field trip here. It was a great place to learn about water and how we use it. They have amazing trails that you can walk and the views are beautiful. Is an amazing place in the city to go and reconnect with nature

I've lived in London for nearly 20 years now and I'm still shocked to hear lifelong Londoners say they have never been to the Ponds, or don't know where it is. This is truly a gem right in the heart of the city that should be explored by everyone. When you walk the trails into the Ponds, it is shocking... More

Westminster Ponds is literally a slice of paradise in the heart of the City, with its three ponds and several walking trails, one can spend hours there. Living in London and nearby Westminster Ponds we go there frequently for a walk through the woods or to simply sit and look out over the ponds. There are some spots in the... More

For new comers, it's best to stop at the Tourist Bureau on the east side of Wellington Street (just north of Southdale Road next to the firehall). You'll be able to get trail guides there, as there are numerous trails throughout the park. One of the trail entrances is right behind the Tourist Bureau. The trails are fairly easy to... More
