Upcoming Events

  • Fitness Trail

    The 1.1-mile trail goes through a very pretty wooded area that contains some evergreen trees, creeks that lead into Winton Lake and habitat for many different types of animals.

    The trail features several exercise stations along its length to build variety into your workout

    Trail Length: 1.10 miles
    Trail Type: Fitness
    Trail Level: Moderate

  • Glenwood Gardens to Winton Woods Trail (In Design)

    A new trail is being planned to link two of the most popular Great Parks. At 3.6 miles in length, the Glenwood Gardens to Winton Woods Trail will open new doors to these parks and connect to additional trails that wind through gardens, prairies, wetlands, forests and lakes. Planning and design are now underway for this exciting project.


  • Great Oaks Trail

    The 0.7-mile trail winds you through a beautiful forest and along Kingfisher Creek.

    The trail has many old and wonderfully huge oak trees, from which it took its name.

    This is a wonderful spot to see the spring wildflower trout lily in April as it covers many of the hillsides along this trail.

    Trail Length: 0.70 miles
    Trail Type: Nature
    Trail Level: Moderate

  • Harbor Loop Trail

    The Harbor Loop Trail is 1.7 miles around the lake and includes two bridges. The trail also extends under Winton Road to the West Loop Trail, which is an additional .9 miles.

    The trail passes by the boathouse, which floats because of the lake being used for flood control, and by the campground, which includes 123 camping sites.

    You will notice on the hillside near the basketball courts there is an historical marker for the Science Hall School. Built in 1806, it served as the area school for 132 years until 1938, when the Village of Greenhills was created.

    Along the trail, you may notice trees that have been gnawed at or bark clippings. This may be the carpentry work of the beavers that reside in the park and enjoy grabbing a tasty meal from the trees along the shore.

    Trail Length: 1.70 miles
    Trail Type: Shared-use
    Trail Level: Easy

  • Kingfisher Trail

    This 1.1-mile trail has two distinct sections: the upper forested section and the lower section that runs along Kingfisher Creek.

    The upper section is a relatively young forest and travels along a small seasonal creek.

    The lower portion is sometimes flooded out depending on the time of year and rainfall or snow melt.  The creek provides a home for many species of bird, crayfish, dragonflies and many others. 

    Trail Length: 1.10 miles
    Trail Type: Nature
    Trail Level: Moderate

  • West Branch Trail

    This trail spur connects the harbor to the Winton Centre and eventually to the Kingfisher Trail.

    As you pass the visitor center parking lot, the rain garden provides three seasons of blooms, birds and insects to delight you.

    This section of the trail also provides an overlook in the spring of the heron rookery across the lake

    Trail Length: 0.90 miles
