  • My husband and I took a Sunday afternoon stroll last Fallw with our 2 grandsons through the Devonwood Conservation area. The boys enjoyed it thoroughly and wished there was more to walk through...  more »
  • It is a small conservation area right in the centre of town a urban forest. about 2.3 km walking trails with nice old oak trees and other plant species. Good for a quick jog for those living around...  more »
  • This is a nice walking trail, it is a very basic circle through a wooded area with a few branching paths to cut the walk shorter. It is a breeding ground for mosquitoes though as it is pretty much a swamp, much better to walk in the fall and winter or early spring. People also just sit in their cars in the parking lot for some reason which is strange.
  • Great place for a walk in the woods. Look out for bears and moose! Haha, no, maybe you'll see a deer or an owl, lots of squirrels, some black ones with red strips .
