Devonwood Conservation Area reviews
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 .
