Day 158 of 365 – Dragonfly Park

Today I thought it would be a good idea to clear my head and sort out some business issues.  People think being a realtor is easy…All I can say is walk a day in my shoes and you’ll understand the things we go though but this blog is not about me and my personal adventures but about helping you find the great things to do in the Orangeville area.  So, today I took a walk in Dragonfly park.

Drangonfly park received its name from its marshland that is inhabited and is known for its dragonflies. The Headwaters Carving Club completed a nature pole which illustrates the natural wildlife in the area and incorporates a dragonfly.

Dragonfly Park is was .25 acres and is located on Town Line but it has expanded over the years to cover a large area.. Named in 2002, the park’s marshland is inhabited and known for its dragonflies. A brick walkway leads from the gravel path to the information pavilion and from the pavilion to a wetlands boardwalk, both completed in 2000. The boardwalk and viewing platforms serve as an educational and recreational extension of the Town’s trail network. The area was originally known as Compass Gardens in 1998. The Mile “0” Cairn marks the headwaters of the Credit River and marks the starting point of this future trail.   There is even a huge Canadian Flag that marks the entrance (but you can enter at a few other points in the trail)
