Not really a trail but rather more of a garden or series of gardens. Lots of foliage to look at as well as some interesting sculptures and exhibits. There are plenty of plaques providing details about the trees and art work. You must pay an entry fee at the RGB to access this particular trail. Also there’s not a lot of shade so be prepared to be in direct sunlight if to a bright day.

Lovely place for a long walk. Dog-friendly gardens and trails. Have seen muskrats here on multiple occasions in the wetlands. Lots of birds. Definitely a nice place to come for a stroll and a chat on a nice Summer day. There is a lot of sun exposure in the wetland areas so bring sunscreen and a hat if you burn easily!

Excellent. This is the trail closest to Royal Botanical Gardens. It ends on a roadway so just turn and go back. There is option to do hill at one point or stay on less strenuous trail. It all connects and is beautiful . Birds practically land on you as they're so well protected and used to people. Loads of chipmunks all the kids enjoy feeding and some very large fish too. Popular birding area.
