Beautiful large old trees, and a bubbling creek set the tone for the beautiful Aylmer Parks. Enjoy your lunch in one of the picnic areas, or on one of the benches by the creek. Go for your morning run along one of the paved or unpaved trails. Bring the little ones to feed the ducks or play on one of the creative play structures. These are just a few of what Aylmer Parks has to offer; visit one today!
