Parks & Trails
An internationally acclaimed Communities In Bloom champion, Brantford is alive with colour during the spring and summer. Unique and intricate floral displays seem to brighten up every corner of the city, from public parks, to roadway medians. Brantford’s Lorne Park and Victoria Square are brimming with spectacular annuals and shade trees. The grounds of historic Bell Homestead and Glenhyrst Art Gallery boast impressive floral displays. Even private homeowners do their part to make Brantford one of the Best Bloomin’ Cities around.
There are dozens of fantastic trails in the area. Some are for hiking only, like the Grand Valley Trail or the Six Nations Nature Trail. While others are for hiking and cycling, like the Trans-Canada Trail system, S.C. Johnson Trail and the Gordon Glaves Memorial Pathway.
The trails provide a venue for winter outdoor activities and, weather permitting, can be used for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Most of the trails are covered in stone dust or fine gravel, however some stretches in Brantford are paved, which are ideal for those are wishing to access them by wheelchair.
