Lowville Park – a little hidden away spot for a walk

Lowville Park, in Lowville, Ontario – a tiny town just north of Burlington, Ontario – is a secret gem of a park that runs along Bronte Creek. It’s nestled between Guelph Line and Walkers Line, and lies just north of Britannia Road.

If you blink, you miss it. You need to make a swift turn off of Guelph Line as it curves around in Lowville.  We visited Lowville Park  on a cool autumn day with blustery winds. A few brave souls, including a couple stripped down to just their light sweaters for an engagement photo shoot, wandered around the park.

On a summer’s day, it’s probably teeming with people. The trails here are along Bronte Creek and wander into wooded areas. It was our luck that we chose a time when most of the leaves were on the ground, and the salmon were making their final swim in the creek. The only downside was that the fish were also dying along the banks so the stink was sometimes unbearable.

However, the views were delightful – the creek meanders around with the trail right beside it. For those who love taking photos, the spot offers some beautiful scenes.

It’s an easy and fairly short walk around – you can take the kids along. Bring comfy walking shoes or hiking boots.

In the winter, Lowville Park is the setting for the annual Lowville Winter Games, where families get together to enjoy the outdoors and various activities such as tobogganing, skating, games and sitting by a fire, sipping hot chocolate.
