Springbank Park is not only the city's largest public space, but also the prettiest, with 30 kilometers of trails meandering gently through a mix of pleasant gardens and unspoiled wilderness. It's also the city's oldest park and has been a popular place of relaxation since the late 1800s. Some of the best paths closely follow the river, with plenty of benches offering places to sit and enjoy the views. For those with time on their hands, why not follow the well-marked trail network all the way to the city center? Although 10 kilometers away, you can make the whole trek without once having to face any vehicle traffic. Springbank Park is especially popular with families. In addition to its many play areas with swings and slides, it's also home to Storybook Gardens. This popular family attraction has been entertaining youngsters here since it opened in the 1950s. Address: 1085 Commissioners Road W, London, Ontario
