Parks & Trails
The City of Brantford prides itself on the quality parks and trails it provides season after season for residents and visitors to enjoy. Some parks provide a peaceful, relaxing setting where you can enjoy passive recreational activities, while others are venues for sports and active pursuits. The City's gorgeous private and public gardens have been recognized with several titles in the Communities in Bloom competition.
The City offers nearly 70 kilometres of natural trails that are perfect for running, cycling or hiking. With constant upgrades and additions, there's always somewhere new to explore along the way.
REMINDER TO ALL PARK AND TRAIL USERS:
Under Bylaw 102 - 2004 the operation of motorized vehicles and equipment on trails and in city parks is not allowed.
- this includes ATV's, motorcycles, motorized trail bikes, snowmobiles, motorized scooters, e-bikes, etc.
- motorized wheelchairs and scooters used by persons with disabilities are allowed on city trails.
- pedestrians and cyclists use our trails and children play in our parks, please help to keep them safe.
Thank you for your attention and cooperation regarding this matter.
Stoop & Scoop - It's the Law!
People play in parks and walk on our trails; they sometimes leave garbage behind.
Dogs play in parks and walk on our trails; they can leave something a little different behind.
The City's goal is to eliminate all "presents" left behind in Brantford's parks and trails, whether it's ourselves or our fine, furry friends who are creating the mess.
We need your help!
If you're enjoying a day in the park with Fido or taking your dog for a walk on the trails , the City of Brantford implores you to remember two key factors of bylaw #102-2004:
1. Please keep your furry family member on a leash, unless you're in a designated leash-free park.
2. Please pick up any little "leave-behinds" your dog may drop. The old 'Stoop and Scoop'!
Following this City of Brantford bylaw will ensure that we can all enjoy our beautiful parks and gardens harmoniously.
Thank you for your cooperation - by working together, we can keep our city clean!
