Just before the boardwalk, there is a section of the Kelly Lake Trail which goes through a grove of birch trees. I know it’s tempting to peel off some bark. Instead, pick up bark from the ground. Peeling off too much birch bark can kill the tree.

The trails are well-signed so you don’t have to worry about getting lost. We decided to visit the Fielding Bird Sanctuary first. It’s at the East end of Kelly Lake and a short walk from the parking lot, along the Fielding Park Loop.

We had picked this park in hopes of seeing swans. But, only saw ducks on our walk. It was the May long weekend so, it may have been a little early for the swans.

We heard it before we saw the mini-waterfall. There’s a small path off of the Fielding Park Loop that will take you to a picnic table on a platform that overlooks a mini waterfall on the river.

We were walking with my 86-year-old Grandmother so, we did the loop and walked to the boardwalk and back. It was just over 3km.
