parks & trails

There are many ways for residents and visitors to experience Leamington's natural environment.

The Municipality maintains over 30 hectares of parks and open natural spaces, including numerous trails and outdoor sport facilities located throughout Leamington.

The Marina/Waterfront Park and Seacliff Park are two of the biggest attractions located along the shores of Lake Erie and include many amenities for the whole family to enjoy.

Abandoned railways have been repurposed throughout the Municipality of Leamington into trails for the enjoyment of walkers, joggers, and cyclists. This is a great way to get out and enjoy the outdoors while getting exercise.

 To view all of these trails please refer to the Parks Map.

Monarch Trail

Point Pelee National Park is located in the Municipality of Leamington in southwestern Ontario, Canada.  Both the Municipality and the park are an important annual stopover point for migrating monarchs.  Beginning in 2015, the Town of Leamington partnered with Point Pelee National Park to install monarch habitat in 18 plant beds, along 2 km of a popular existing trail.  Officially named “The Leamington Monarch Trail,” it is a milkweed and nectar habitat installation which includes new trilingual interpretive signage to communicate the importance of monarch habitat to the conservation of the species.

Book your winter camping adventure in a Point Pelee oTENTik under the overarching hickory and chestnut trees in the Carolinian Forest in Canada’s smallest and most ecologically diverse national park. Don’t forget to head out for a nighttime expedition to view the stars; Point Pelee is a designated Dark Sky Preserve and nothing pairs so well with twinkling celestial bodies as a hot thermos of cocoa! ❄️⛺ 📍 Point Pelee National Park, Leamington, ON

It’s #ThrowBackThursday! Leamington's first government-owned post office opened to the public on May 27, 1911 and was erected on Talbot Street West near Fox Street. The structure was designed by David Ewart, a Canadian architect who served as Chief Dominion Architect from 1896 to 1914. As chief government architect, he was responsible for many of the federal buildings constructed in this period. Symmetrical neoclassical buildings modeled after classical Greek and Roman temples were thought to symbolize principles of justice and democracy, and thus the style was often used for federal buildings, like the post office. In 1993, the building was transformed into the Leamington Arts Centre (LAC), which is still in operation today.

Happy #TourismTuesday everyone!🌳 Have you walked through Garrison Garden yet? Located on Garrison Ave, this park has many beautiful scenic walkways including the Laybrinth path. A labyrinth is a symbol and a tool used for meditation and reflection. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. It is a symbol found in ancient cultures, religious mystical traditions and Native American culture. It is important to walk to labyrinth with an open heart and mind. To walk to labyrinth, it is suggested to first walk 3 times counter clockwise around the perimeter to unwind yourself. Then proceed and pause at the entrance way to allow yourself to be fully conscience of the act of stepping into the labyrinth. This is not a maze; there are no false trails. One path leads you to the center and back out. The entrance is also the exit. Many individuals will reflect on a personal problem, become enveloped in prayer or allow the labyrinth to guide their thoughts.

It’s #ThrowBackThursday! Remember those days when construction was an exciting event! It was a big day in Leamington in 1914 when they poured cement to pave the town’s main intersection. This photo of ‘The Four Corners’ was taken from the south-west corner and looks towards the north-east corner (where the Gingerbread House Restaurant is today). In 1914, the town paved Talbot Street between Erie Street and the easterly limit of the town. The next year the pavement was laid on Erie Street between Talbot Street and Concession 3 (Wilkinson Drive), and also on Victoria Avenue between Talbot Street East and Clark Street.

Tens of thousands of monarch butterflies are flying through Canada's most southern point and resting along the shore of Lake Erie as they migrate toward Mexico this month.
•
The shoreline of Point Pelee National Park acts as an ideal resting spot for the colourful butterflies as they prepare for the roughly 40 kilometre flight across Lake Erie and into Ohio, with only a few islands in between.
•
Andrew Laforet, the park's interpretation coordinator, says it's hard to predict exactly when they'll cross the lake, so now is a great time to go catch a glimpse of the monarchs.
•
In particular, he says rainy, windy days are good for capturing photos of them, as are early mornings and sunsets, when clusters of butterflies are most likely to appear.
