Start close to home
You do not have to travel far to experience the beauty of Brantfordâ€™s many public parks. Residents at Graham Bell Apartments (24, 26 & 28 Helen Avenue), for example, are just across the street from scenic Princess Anne Park. From Centennial Towers Apartments (150 Darling Street & 129 Wellington Street), walk just five minutes to historic Victoria Park (65 Market Street), a quaint spot for an afternoon stroll.
Access the trails
A great way to explore Brantfordâ€™s best parks is to ride the trails. Jump on the Fordview Trail via Dogford Park (189 Gilkison Street), a simple five-minute bike ride from Graham Bell Apartments. The pathway runs all the way up to Fordview Park and down to Gilkison Flats, where you can connect with the Gilkison Trail to lengthen your ride. Along the way, enjoy scenic views of the Grand River as you traverse through many of Brantfordâ€™s finest parks.
Mohawk Park Pavilion
Whether for your next family gathering, an evening concert or a quiet afternoon to yourself, Mohawk Park Pavilion (51 Lynnwood Drive) is one of the cityâ€™s most popular parks and a great place to get to know this spring. From Centennial Towers Apartments, plan on an easy 10-minute bike ride to get to this green space.
Garden enthusiasts will want to add Lorne Park (Ballantyne Drive) to their list of must-visit destinations in Brantford. Only a five-minute bike ride from Graham Bell Apartments, located next to Fordview Park, the flowers here create a serene environment, ideal for de-stressing after a long week or taking photos for special events.
