Beautiful wooded trail! Great for dog walking and nature walks. Lots of parking and just minutes away from a lift bridge connected to the Welland canal located on the main road of Lakeshore.

If your looking for a nice walk with minimal hills and a nice easy path than this is the place. There is a nice pond to check out and few few art pieces here and there. Plenty of parking available.

Lovely meadow and forest along the Welland canal at Lake Ontario. Not too long or far for walkers or children. Make sure your dog is on a leash. Lots of people and bikes on the trails.

Nice park the elementary school I went to is really close to it so I have been there many times, it's a great way to teach students about nature. Warning: during school hours it can be busy!

Convenient parking for the park at the end of Niagara St. at Lakeshore Rd. Not an overly large park, but nice for a short walk or to tack onto the beginning or end of a larger walk. I like this park for cross country skiing...More
