4 Ways to Experience Belleville’s History

1. East Hill Walk

Many of the houses the Loyalists and their descendants built are located in East Hill, a short walk from downtown. Stop by Corby Rose Garden during the summer which features 2,000 roses, perennial and annual flowers and a lovely fountain.

2. Stroll Along the River

Stroll along the historic Moira River on the Parrott Riverfront Trail, starting from Dundas St. heading north to Memorial Park.

Pick up a Trail Map at Belleville’s Visitors Centre or on the 3rd floor of City Hall.
