MacDonald Park Trail

The park is adjacent to the Rose Trail on the approved route for the Trans-Canada Trail and at the northern end of the Baldoon Commemorative Trail. It is significant from an historical perspective and is a natural wildlife habitat, a destination for bird enthusiasts and an excellent example of positive ecological management. Several native trees have been planted thanks to the sponsorship of the TD-Canada Trust Friends of the Environment Foundation.

Facilities at MacDonald Park include a launch ramp, washroom facilities, a picnic area and some good fishing sites. The trail portion circles through a diverse natural area and around the Roberta Stewart Wetlands, a great place for bird watching!

Trails are open for walking and sight seeing on a 1 and ½ km long mowed grass surface. MacDonald Park was named after Eric MacDonald, former Wallaceburg Mayor, founder of Mac-Craft Boat Works (1938) and Mac Construction (1946). It is the location of commemorative sites and a plaque outlining the famed Baldoon Mystery which took place nearby in the 1830 to 1840 period. Immediately south is the Roberta Stewart Wildlife area, set aside as a natural habitat.
