AND THE BEST OF THE BAY WINNER IS…
ZWICK’S RECREATIONAL TRAIL
A 3.25 km double looped, paved and well-lit trail. Winding its way along the beautiful Bay of Quinte, you will view picturesque parkland and natural landscapes.
ZWICK’S RECREATIONAL TRAIL
A paved waterfront trail runs around both East and West Zwick’s Park with various access points directly from the paved parking lots throughout the park.
SAGER LOOKOUT TOWER
From the lookout tower, you can admire the panoramic scenery of the Trent River Valley. It’s just a short walk from the parking lot to the lookout tower and is well worth the climb. The view will take your breath away — what breath you have left that is.
KINSMEN COMMUNITY OUTDOOR POOL
Operated by the QSWC, the Kinsmen Pool is a 32m 6 lane outdoor pool heated to 78-80 and is open from the end of June to the beginning of September. Register your swim in advance to avoid disappointment.
NORTH BEACH PROVINCIAL PARK
Over one kilometre ribbon of sand shelters North Beach from Lake Ontario and is a great place to picnic on a summer day. Quieter than its more famous neighbour and you have the option of being bayside or lake side depending on how you like your water — calm or wavy.
THE NAPANEE RIVER
The only annual mega geocaching event in Canada happens in Lennox and Addington County which includes Napanee. The most popular event is the water cache canoe and kayak cruise from the Napanee River. It’s a four-day event and happens again starting August 17th, 2024
Cricklewood Farm continues its corn maze tradition with not one but two separate mazes. There’s a 6-acre maze and a 1-acre mini-maze. So get lost already!
The pumpkin patch typically gets going at the end of September and you can wander the fields to pick one that’s to your liking.
Let’s see what we got!
