View on Map



Hemlock Ravine Park is 200-acre habitat with opportunities for walking, nature observation, and relaxation; short off-leash area for dogs. The heart-shaped pond known as Julie’s Pond was built by Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, for his mistress. The 4-km stacked loop trails offer many routes for jogging and observation of nature in all seasons. (Please do not feed the waterfowl.) The round white building opposite the park, once a music rotunda, is now an historic site but is not open to the public. Bring a map as the trails are not well signed!
