Lovely spot to walk our dog most of the year. Not ploughed or taken care of in the Winter months. This should be considered for the future as many people drive to Haliburton where the lake walk is maintained and thus end up shopping there...More

We were driving through Minden hills when we noticed some wood sculptures carved from trees along the river. Decided to stop and look at the others along the river. Parking was very easy and we took a short stroll along the river. Very peaceful place.

The river walk is a great way to relax and enjoy nature. Took the grandkids there and saw wild beavers swimming, bullfrogs and many species of birds.

A very nice stroll along the wetlands of Minden downtown. Stay along the river or take one of the branches and arrive at the Cultural Centre and Library.

Meandered along one side across the nice metal bridge and back down the other side. Peaceful, a couple cars drive down the one road on the one side, other side we came across a couple Canada geese. Nice spot for a leisurely stroll.
