Walking trails, playgrounds all in the heart of old Newmarket. Plenty of parking and stores and restaurants just seconds away. Bring your bikes, dogs, kids, etc

Great all season path to walk or ride. Winter you can bring your skates and summer the kids can splash in the fountain. Close to many great food choices. Our dogs love the wilderness with out having to drive far

Lovely park to go for a walk, just sitting on a bench and watch around or go for a bike ride. I’ve seen people go there to BBQ or have a picnic and occasionally there’s events going on in the park.

Walked this park as a child. Still nice but the city is getting bigger and fairy lake no longer has the feel and atmosphere it once had. It's modernized, and is still a good walk anytime of day.

This park is situated right in centre of Newmarket. It is a perfect place to relax and enjoy nature with family or friends. The grounds are well maintained and Newmarket itself looked beautiful with many flowers and hanging baskets on display.

The whole pathway that runs through Fairy Lake - (which is actually called the Tom Taylor Trail) is just over 16km in total. The "hills" on the path are very minimal.
