Wesley Clover Park

Wesley Clover Park is home to many outdoor activities, from an equestrian park to cabins and tent sites for camping. While many people may know the park as home to a twinkling holiday light display in December, Wesley Clover Park is also home to a 4-kilometre loop trail that’s open all year-round. You can also enjoy the network of cross-country ski trails within the park, giving you access to over 18 kilometres of trails.

Brookline Multi-Use Pathway Network

Brookline is connected to a series of community pathways and a decommissioned CN rail corridor so homeowners and visitors alike can explore the pristine greenspace. These paths also connect to a six-acre preserved woodlot and stormwater pond, with the latter surrounded by a future trailway. Homeowners will soon be able to explore the extensive trail network developed specifically for Brookline, offering a place for people to escape from the stresses of everyday life and bike or walk to unwind in a natural space. 

These are just a few of the many stunning trails you can traverse in Kanata. Don’t feel limited, though! Explore the area on your own and see all it has to offer.
