A perfect surprise!  This Conservation Area is 9 hectares with an attractive network of trails.  Located in the Town of Tecumseh, the 1 kilometre trail through wooded area and thicket is not only pleasant, but offers a short enough walk for even the youngest naturalist.  Most of the trail is paved, offering easy accessibility for walkers, wheelchairs and strollers.  The adjacent grounds, operated by the Town, include soccer pitches, tennis courts, and playground facilities.

We would also direct you to read our DISCLAIMER and our TRAIL USERS CODE.
