Irishtown Nature Park
This is a 2200 acre, mostly forested, municipal park with access to a large artificial lake. The park has an important network of hiking and cycling trails and it is slated to soon be enlarged.
This is said to already be one of the largest Municipal Park/Green Spaces in Canada. There are many nice stands of mature trees found here and that is certainly one of the highlights of this amazing place. Many residents are very aware of the wonderful privilege of having such a wonderful, expansive green space within city limits and the park is becoming increasingly well-used. Some of the nice stands of trees include some essences which are somewhat to quite rare in this part of the province, such as White Pine and Black Cherry. The large reservoir has recently played host to nesting Bald Eagles, Osprey and Common Loon.
