Went for a walk in this park and really enjoyed it. It's huge! We did a short trail (it was raining) but will definitely be back to explore more of it. So pretty and peaceful.

It's hard to believe this park is in the middle of the city! It has an untouched feel to it (on some of the trails) while having other more groomed trails as well. A great spot to take the dogs and usually very quiet.

Part of the Trans Canada Trail, great for a leisurely stroll or a more aggressive hike , run or bike ride with full access to downtown Peterborough without travelling main streets.

This is a nice park and an easy walk on the Canada Trail, but beware, there are carpets of poison ivy lurking in the undergrowth.

With all the wildflowers in bloom, sun on our backs and the trees canopied above our heads, it felt like you were about to enter the fairytale forest. It is a gorgeous place to walk, ride your bike or run on the Trans Canada Trail....More
