Trail passes along pretty residential streets, some of which feature historic cottages that were once part of a religious camp. The quaint cottage-style homes have been well preserved and are brightly painted. You can enjoy another piece of history at the Pumphouse at Forty Mile Creek Park. This facility has been restored to its 1930's splendour and houses photographs and panels explaining the area's history.
