  • Thank you to all of those visionaries of three to four decades ago! They arranged for the sale of a major portion of the Lemoine Point farm from its owner to the people of Kingston. The Canadian Government, the Province of Ontario and the City of Kingston shared the cost. I enjoy this wonderful property by parking in the lot at Rotary Park next to the marina. I then take a route which circumvents the entire Lemoine Point park. It takes me about 75 minutes to complete it at a brisk pace. A shorter alternative is to start at the north parking lot. Starting at Rotary Park, the route I follow begins on a path that runs along the south side of Collins Bay all the way to Lemoine Point farm. The sights along this route include an enormous totem pole, all sorts of ducks, swans and geese, beautiful homes across the Bay, and finally Lake Ontario disappearing far out to the west. You then make a gradual turn to the left to pass by a toilet and then to walk alongside the Lemoine Point farm. You see the original farm buildings including the water tower and lots of sheep. On your left is a tall fence meant to keep the deer out of area where an attempt is being made to recreate the original oak forest. You eventually reach the south parking lot where you have two alternatives to get to the north parking lot. One is to stay to your left and take the wide open gravelled pathway the width of a road. The other alternative is to stay to your right and take the narrow, dirt path which runs alongside the Kingston airport. The latter alternative takes you on a more rugged route where you can encounter wet stretches depending upon both recent weather and the season (spring is wetter due to melting snow). When you reach the north parking lot, follow the road which eventually reaches Rotary Park. Along the way, you'll see the large garden maintained by volunteers and a large fenced in area where your dog can run.
  • 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.
  • Great trails. Just be careful of ticks. Our dog got them on a few occasions over the years.
  • This is a wonderful spot to go for an afternoon walk at anytime of year. There are several different paths to take and there are wheelchair accessible paths. Great place to take the kids for walk and then have a play at the park after. Good place to take the dog for a walk as well.
  • Great spot for a walk, a short bike, or a cross-country skiing the winter. Paths are a mix of forest and open field and a small amount of waterfront. The adjacent airport can be noisy, and there's a strange paved over dump site in the middle of the park, but the rest of the park is clean and well maintained.

Where to stay in Kingston

The most desirable accommodations in Kingston line the waterfront in the city's downtown region, offering views over the wide St. Lawrence River. If you want to immerse yourself in the city's hippest scene, look slightly west to the area around Queen's University, where you'll also enjoy easy access to some of Kingston's most pleasant parks. Those hoping to take some road trips out of the city should consider staying at one of the many motels and guesthouses along Princess Street--there, you're perfectly placed to hit the road and explore the region.
