The beautiful lush green of ‘emerald’ scenery gives the Millennium Trail rare glimpses into the past and how the area must have looked in the time of the early settlers. It is designed for walkers, joggers, in-line skaters, cyclists, cross-country skiers, and snowshoe enthusiasts.
The walkway is highlighted with an outdoor museum featuring storyboards that tell the history of our people, the environment, and how the people of the area lived off the land. The Millennium Trail also features a flow-through swimming pool, the Evergreen Stage - a performing arts stage constructed from logs, a beautiful Victorian-styled gazebo, and a prayer/wedding chapel.
The entrance gates feature timber-framed monuments meant to evoke memories of the areas heritage in logging and agriculture. Trail goers can relax at various rest stations located on the trail and bask in the tranquil beauty of the Petawawa River. Information provided by the Municipality of Petawawa website.
