Lilac Festival – International Trails Day
Enter the trail from the east off Logie Street at the north end of Logie Park or from the west off Logie St. at Lindsay St. South.
Newly completed in the fall of 2009, this hard top surfaced portion provides accessibility as it meanders beside the unique Memory Walk with views of the river and through the perennial Welcome Gardens, the Gateway to the Lilac Gardens of Lindsay, stewards of this portion of the trail.
The Gardens is a haven for nature lovers where 41 different bird & several butterfly species have been recorded, encouraged by select plantings and the ‘Butterfly Garden’ which provides a perfect habitat. Park benches allow for pleasant resting places to take a lunch break and to enjoy nature and the beauty of this ‘jewel’, especially at the end of May when the lilacs are in full bloom.
This year, 2013, International Trails Day, June 1st falls on the last Saturday of our Open House Lilac Festival. Come & join in the festivities.
