The experience you’ll receive from walking the Cullen Central Park Trails is unlike any other; located in Cullen Central Park, Wounded Warrior’s Park of Reflection. The park is dedicated to wounded veterans, and reflects the services of our armed forces. Featuring a sculpture representing the journey of ill or injured veterans, surrounded by a labyrinth garden, the park is the only one of its kind. A beautiful mixture of urban and rural landscapes, teeming with lush greenery.

Created to the citizens of the town of Whitby, the Whitby Scout Trail was created for people to enjoy the unique beauty of the Pringle Creek valley lands. The trail is a joint project between the Scouts Canada, Whitby Area and the Town of Whitby. It is the perfect way to enjoy a peaceful walk amidst the town and appreciate the beautiful, natural colours of fall.

Lynde Shores Conservation Area is a wonderful way to appreciate the beautiful fall weather, outdoors. The trails are both stroller and wheelchair friendly, allowing everyone to partake in the wildlife viewing. The Birdfeeder Trail is one of many favourites, as birds will feed right from your hand. If you prefer to see the conservation area from a different perspective, there is also canoeing and paddling available from summer, into early fall.
