When you walk the trail around Little Lake in Peterborough you have lots to see and enjoy.

Sand and water and little kids are happy. Campers at Beavermead campground can enjoy this beach just a short walk from their campsite.

Walking a little further one can sit and watch the pleasure boats go through this lock on the Trent Severn Waterway. This waterway was built back in the 1800 as a way to open up southern Ontario to settlement and economic development. Unfortunately by the time it was completed railroads had been built and could handle more goods and move people faster than the boats on the canals. There is one lock on the system that is a rail line actually taking the boats out of the water and lifting them up to the next lake by rail car.

New this year is a water park located at the far end of the path up on Maria Street. It's the perfect place to spend a hot summer day with little children.

Take some time to explore Peterborough; it has a lot to offer and don't forget the Farmers' Market every Saturday morning.

Enjoy these last few days of summer.

  1. So glad you get to see all the positives in the towns and villages you visit. We understand the Farmer's Market in Peterborough is outstanding.
