Trails, Parks & Playgrounds

Trail System

The Battle River Valley trail system has about 10 kilometres of paved trails that wind along the east banks of the scenic Battle River. The trails are ideal for walkers, joggers, cyclists and in-line skaters to enjoy the benefits of a beautiful, natural area.

The paths wind along a variety of trees and through open spaces while sharing the river valley with water foul, song birds and other wildlife.

The Battle River Valley trail is also part of the Trans Canada Trail System, a collaboration of greenways, waterways and roadways stretching across the country and is the longest recreational, multi-use trail network in the world.
