Take some time to enjoy our park spaces and trails. We have over 400 hectares of serene parks that can be enjoyed by residents and visitors alike. The expansive trail system of 130 kilometres allows for hours of exploration while transporting you to a peaceful world. You can walk, bike, hike, cross-country ski and inline skate through the natural beauty of the urban park trail system of asphalt, gravel and natural trails carved from the forest.

Birchwood Trails and outdoor green gym

The Birchwood Trails are located in the Con Creek valley between Thickwood, Dickensfield, Timberlea, and offer great opportunities for walking, running and cross country skiing in the winter months. With the outdoor gym conveniently running along the outside of Birchwood Trail, you can incorporate a more complete fitness routine. The equipment is set up in a dozen stations running from Cornwall Road, to behind the Birchwood field, and ending at Woodland Drive.
