Here are some great memories shared by people in our Bannockburn Memories Log Book:

The year it snowed and I had to help shovel the walkways! - Kelly

I was proposed to here at Bannockburn! - Anonymous

Chatting with friendly people.

Coming here with my father for years - even in the snow.

A year that was 20 degrees and sunny and with beautiful leaves.

The contrast of my children's bright coast against the grey bush - vibrant!

Always a nice enjoyable walk.

Family outings with pictures on the horizontal log; always a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

When I had first walk in 1973 - spice bush and good naturalist talks.

Beautiful walk ... only fell once! - Strathroy

Beautiful trees and path. - Clinton

Beautiful forest. - Wallaceburg

A lovely walk. We have never seen so much water in the creek. - Exeter

High point on the trail. Tobogganed down the hill in the winter in the 1980s. - Clinton

Beautiful day, great trails. A lot of work went into this to make it wonderful! - Ailsa Craig

Many years ago, we watched a whole family of Mennonites in their long dresses climb the muddy hills before the wooden stairs. Today was a great time again. - Exeter

Just love coming here and seeing the change of seasons. - Seaforth

Love the change of seasons and love bringing the kids to walk and see everything. - Seaforth

Love walking with kids and grandkids. - Seaforth

Lots of fun hikes with kids and  our family. - Hensall

Lots of memories - great new loop. Lots of mud - keep up the great work. - Clinton
