Pine Grove Park

Pine Grove Park, a beautiful restful parkland owned and maintained by Abitibi-Bowater lies on the edge of Liverpool. Abitibi-Bowater is a major employer in the area. There are two main loops consisting of well-maintained, very easy hiking trails.  If you follow the loop to the right, it encircles a large pond where plenty of aquatic life abounds.  The other trail, which is a little longer, passes through tall pine trees with a few mixed hardwoods scattered throughout the forest. Both loops intersect at the back of the park.  Here there is a nice picnic area on the lake where well water can be pumped from an old-fashioned pump; picnic tables and pit toilets are present.
To walk the entire park would take about an hour or it can be biked in about 20 minutes.  There are about 3 km in total of trails. Early summer weather colours the forest with blossoms of every shade; rhododendrons, magnolias, azaleas,  and wild orchids. It is a beautiful place here one can enjoy the tranquility of the birdsong in the trees, where the Mersey River glides past to meet the sea and where artists sit at their easels - putting paint to canvas - capturing nature at its best.
