Cemetery
“Okay, this sounds like a joke, but it really isn't. Less than a 5 minute walk puts you in a tranquil setting with one of the most diverse collection of types/species of trees in Ontario. The roadways are a pleasant place to walk or ride a bike in the neighbourhood. I've always joked that while it's a final resting place for so many, it's completely filled with life: people jogging, walking, and biking. You will be surprised! A great place to be rejuvenated.”

“You’ll find an entrance to the nature trail running through the ravine of David A. Balfour Park by the playground located in the back of the eastern part of Rosehill Reservoir. It is a real treat to go down this trail as you quickly see the ravine closing on you and soon forget about the city.”
