I didn't know London has such a place. Love the boardwalk and the tranquility this place hides in plane sight in the city. Beautiful place for a photo shoots or just snap some shots of raw nature.

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

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.

Spent a whole day walking around here. We saw some wonderful wildlife and it was so relaxing walking around. Some of the paths are not well signposted, but we used our compass and was easy to get around

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
