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.

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.
