  • A beautiful place to walk in the woods. Wide trails with no hills. Perfect for families of all ages. Scenic waterviews and lush forest. Friendly squirrels looking for nuts. Chickadees will land in your hand if you have a little birdseed for them. The trails are a bit of a labyrinth but maps at every intersection will keep you on track. Only one rustic bathroom located centrally in the park. Bikes are only allowed on the main trail and dog must be on a leash.
  • Kingstonian's have to be grateful to the three levels of government forty or so years ago who funded the purchase of a large portion of the Lemoine Point farm. Today, the north and south parking lots at the Lemoine Point Conservation Area are always busy with people coming and going to walk (and run) the numerous trails. The views are always interesting. They include views across Collins Bay to the interesting lakeside homes, to the west to see the Brothers Islands and distant generating plants, to the south to the Lemoine Point farm buildings and sheep and to the north to the adjoining Rotary Club park with its dog park, playground, beach and totem pole. On the trails, you see squirrels, Chickadees, deer, wild turkeys and heritage forests. Facilities include two washrooms and a plant nursery for plant purchases.
  • I go here alot to walk pup and feed birds, the black caped chickadees and other wintering birds will even in cold come your hands and feed, it's awesome stuff. Great views of the lake, nice trails to walk on, and amazing trees. You can sometimes even get squirrels to walk up on to you to ask for food.
  • Lovely area. Lots of wildlife from owls to deer. Lots different birds eating from your hand. Well set out trails.
  • Nice wide, well maintained trails. Scenic views of the lake, wooded paths, meadows. A real treasure. They have park benches along most of the trail. Both the northern and southern trailheads have ample parking, though, the northern one has far more parking.
