January 2021 Lockdown
Parks are open! Please keep your distance while enjoying a park, trail or outdoor rink.

Guindon Park is Cornwall's hidden gem - a sprawling 500-acre smoke-free park with access to Cornwall's off-road bike trails and the St. Lawrence River, and dozens of kilometres of walking trails, this natural green space is not to be missed! Access the park via Highway 2. Washrooms are open during the day.

Winter Wonderland

Drive to the western boundary of the City of Cornwall for a forested winter oasis, with trails for every interest:

  • snowshoeing,
  • cross-country skiing,
  • fat biking, and
  • walking.

Please use designated trails - respect groomed tracks for cross-country skiing! The washroom is open until 5 p.m. daily. Parking is free and plentiful!
