Hello Everyone,

This link gives you directions to the Rondeau PP from “Eatonville” which is a whistle stop just past Morpeth on Hwy #3. Copy and paste the link in your browser for a google map.

The idea is to meet at the foot of Hwy #15 (Kent Bridge Road) where it bends to head to the park entry point (see the blue line on the google map). The meeting site is where #15 intersects #17 or Rose Beach Line. Adrian will be parked there by 8:00 am to flag us down at this point (Adrian’s and Corrie’s experience is that there are some good opportunities for observations near this point before heading into the park proper).

We will continue into the park proper after this preliminary stop.

The idea is to pack your own gourmet picnic lunch for the day. We will meet up with the Woodstock Naturalist Club for lunch together at 12 noon in the picnic area near the two small churches which, I believe, are near the traffic circle at the east end of Ferguson Ave. which transects the park.

Rondeau has several trails that are excellent for walking in a day. The park is fairly level and there are boardwalks through wet areas. I recommend that we meet, after the preliminary stop discussed above, at the visitor centre which is inside the park. The interpretive centre here distributes information that can be useful. I suggest a meeting time of 9:00 am at the Park Visitor Centre as a backup.

Remember there is a park entrance fee for each vehicle.

Enjoy this great southern Ontario park!

Joe
