Hemlock Ravine Park is 200-acre habitat with opportunities for walking, nature observation, and relaxation; short off-leash area for dogs. The 4-km stacked loop trails offer many routes for jogging and observation of nature in all seasons. New maps and signage assist in navigating the trails. Alternate access from Downing Street.
The heart-shaped pond known as Julie’s Pond was built by Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, for his mistress. (Note: Please do not feed the waterfowl.) The round white building opposite the park is an historic site but is not open to the public.
