Fergus & District Community Centre Trail


On the edge of Fergus, Ontario’s most Scottish town, this trail is a short hike for local people around the back of the town arena. The old farm hardwood bush is also used as a campground, busy during the Scottish Festival and the Fergus Truck Show. In days of wood heating, farmers usually kept a bush at the back of the property for firewood and maple syrup. Today, these strings of green that lie between our concession roads are important pieces of forest habitat.

During the winter, this bush is a haven for deer, and you could also get a glimpse of rabbits or a pileated woodpecker. These crow-sized birds make a great slash of scarlet as they fly through the bush. Conveniences are handy at the community centre – phones, washrooms and parking. A 10-minute walk away are the attractions of downtown Fergus – the market, pubs or an ice cream parlour – or the more modern attributes of the urban fringe – coffee and submarine shops, even McDonalds.
