This trail passes through a wetland on the west side of Brookfield. The trail follows berms around constructed ponds and is laid out in a stacked loop (figure 8) with a bridge connecting the loops. Take a few minutes along your walk to look at the interpretive signage - learn about the value and function of various types of wetlands and learn to identify wildlife commonly seen here. The ponds and trail were created in 2009 by Lafarge Canada Inc. and Ducks Unlimited Canada.
This trail, with convenience access, is a great area for bird watchers and photographers.
A fishing derby takes place annually in May.
