I’m slowly learning the geography of the Earl Bales Park area.
First I learned of the ski hill by driving my childrn there for lessons:
Then I discovered the trail which follows the Don River.
Further south is the large duck pond.
I will identify it at the end of the post.
At the southern end of the pond, the paved trail continues to the east.
Today I followed it as my city map does not show it. There was one dirt trail heading north from it
and some bluffs.
Eventually the trail begins to climb and finally ends at Westgate Blvd.
Westgate leads to Sandringham Drive which leads to Bathurst Street.
This means that you can walk or cycle a completely paved circular trail starting and ending in Earl Bales Park. This trail passes by stream, pond, field and forest. Perfect!

Found this interesting and informative.

’Bout the time strawberries melts;
On the vines. – James Whitcomb Riley (1849–1916)
