Nature Trails Brochure Flipbook

Fleetwood Park Fleetwood Park offers visitors a combination of quiet walks through an urban forest, peaceful reflection within the gardens, a chance to cool down in a spray park, and more. This park is named after Lance Corporal Arthur Thomas (Tom) Fleetwood, an early settler of the region. After Tom died in WWI, his sister Edith petitioned a request to name the community after him. Years after the charter was successfully granted, Fleetwood Park opened and the name was a natural fit. Most of the nature trails can be found in the southern part of the park, where much of the forest was set aside as an urban forest through referendum. Listen for the hammering of the Pileated Woodpecker, watch for fish in Fleetwood Creek (from the bridges of course!) and marvel at the bigleaf maples covered in moss and licorice ferns. If you’ve never explored the southern part of the park, the 1.8-km loop trail is a great place to start, good for trail running or dog walking. This area is important habitat for wildlife; stay on the trail and keep your dog on-leash. If you are feeling a little more adventurous, explore the narrow and rugged trail that runs through the inner part of the forest.
