Trail Review: Sir Sandford Fleming River Walk

Difficulty: easy
Length: about 1km

We hadn't intended to try out this trail, in fact we didn't even know it was there. Chris and I had gone to Tim Horton's and decided to sit at the Memorial Park off Lindsay Street while we drank our coffee. It was a nice sunny day so I suggested we walk around a bit. The Memorial Park is nice, and we did a few geocaches there a few years ago.

We left the parking lot and followed a little trail that parallels the street (go past the picnic shelter towards the cemetery) and came to a driveway. On the other side of the driveway, the path continued so we decided to follow it. The trail meanders along the river where there are a few benches where you can sit and watch the water. We sat there for a while then decided to see where the trail went.

For a trail that goes through town, you can't expect much. The trail goes past some fields full of heavy equipment. We weren't sure if this was land being developed but we suspected it might have been students because Fleming has lessons on using them. Still, the trail was pretty enough and goes through a nice tree lined area, past a teepee and some other buildings before coming to the parking lot at the college. I recommend it for an easy walk that's close to home.
