This 1.2 km linear limestone trail passes from north to south along Stoney Creek. In the spring you can see fish spawning and experience flora and fauna in this natural setting. This a great trail to walk on windy days as the area is very sheltered due to topography. There is access to downtown shopping via an exit to Washington Grand Avenue.
Veterans Memorial Parkway
This 1.5 km paved trail with lights is a major connection for residents of Baldwin Place and Hickory Hills. The trail intersects Participark over the Kinsmen Bridge to Bridge Street and is a well-used access for downtown shopping and services.
Trans Canada Trail
Enjoy a 10.5 km serene walk from the north end of Tillsonburg over the Hawkins Bridge at Lake Lisgar. Stop for a break and enjoy the fountain and gazebo overlooking the lake. Continue along Concession Street to Kinsmen Participark and take a break at the picnic area. The Trans Canada Trail continues over Baldwin Street to Borden Crescent and continues alongside the Bridges at Tillsonburg Golf Course.
This 5.0 km loop is full of beautiful vistas and has several bridges to cross. This trail is unique as it interfaces with a golf course and portions of the trail are shared with golfers. There is an opportunity to see fish, birds, otters, deer and smaller wildlife--as well as a major railroad trestle from the 1880s.
