Bidgood’s Park

Bidgood Park commemorates the rich agricultural history of the Goulds. It is a 38-acre passive-recreation park that offers fantastic opportunities for nature walks, wildlife viewing, and learning about farming traditions.

There is nearly 4 kilometres of compacted granular trail through Bidgood Park and a 200-metre section of wetlands boardwalk. All areas are accessible by wheelchairs and strollers. A typical looping walk to either end of the park is about 2 kilometres and will take about 30 minutes, or 20 minutes at a brisk walk. Download a map to see the whole trail system.

Bidgood Park preserves a variety of woodland, grassland, and wetland habitats. Trails wind through new-growth mixed coniferous and deciduous trees and shrubs in the eastern portion and shaded old-growth coniferous dominate in western portion of the park. Open wetlands of Ryan’s River, fed by Cochrane Pond and draining via Petty Harbour, cross the centre of the park. In many ways, the diverse cross-section of vegetation, wildlife, and habitats found here is a representation of the Goulds landscape, pre-settlement. It is preserved in a natural state for future generations to learn, explore, and experience.
