Are you looking for somewhere in the community that you can walk in the shade? Then seek out the Terrace Park off Laurentian Drive and enjoy a lovely stroll in the woods and listen to the birds chirping and the chipmunks running and chattering. There is another small park adjacent to the trail that has playground equipment for the grandchildren. There are portapotties available. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the day.

The old train tracks in town have been turned into a great walking trail and bicycle trail for all age groups. Check it out and enjoy the summer sunshine.
