Great Lakes Waterfront Trail named Ontario Trail of Distinction - Media Release

Prescott is located on the world-renowned Great Lakes Waterfront Trail.

The Great Lakes Waterfront Trail is a signed route that connects 84 Ontario communities over 1600 kilometres. It follows the St. Lawrence River to three of Ontario's Great Lakes (Ontario, Erie and Huron) and other national and international trails. It is a celebration of nature and culture connecting 405 parks and natural areas including wetlands, beaches, forests, three UNESCO Biospheres, heritage sites and villages and three popular wine regions.

In South Grenville, the trail follows County Road 2 through Augusta and Edwardsburgh-Cardinal Townships, and the Town of Prescott.

The trail takes you right through the heart of the Town of Prescott, allowing cyclists to stop and relax by the river's edge. If walking or running is more your pace, enjoy a leisurely stroll through the newest addition to the trail, RiverWalk Park, which connects the east to the west side; completing the trail through the community.


Throughout our town, you will find an array of parks for all to enjoy. We have various picnic areas, play-structures, and public waterfront spaces that are fully accessible. As part of a healthy and active community, we feel it is important to have an array of safe, clean social spaces for residents and tourists to gather at and enjoy.
