Connects to the Saint Margaret’s Bay Trail.
Jerry Lawrence (formerly Lewis Lake) Provincial Park is a great nature retreat without having to travel far from the city. Its small trail system is well maintained and connects to the Saint Margaret’s Bay trail, making it a great stopping point on the larger Rum Runners Trail system.
The park sits in between a couple of small lakes; Lewis Lake and Round Lake. Round Lake is stocked with trout several times per season and makes for a great family fishing outing. Facilities include public fishing piers, drive-in picnic areas, charcoal pits, benches, and washrooms. All facilities are fully wheelchair accessible.
The small park is easily explored via the wide, crusher dust trails which line the lakes. The main road loops in between the two lakes and is lined with plenty of picnic areas. The central area adjacent to the parking lot is perfect for large gatherings, and even includes a charcoal pit to cook up the day’s catch.
Accessible washrooms are nearby the central parking and picnic area. Swimming and paddling are allowed, but not near the fishing areas (better reserved for Lewis Lake).
The park is closed, and un-maintained in winter, and the front gate is shut from Oct.13 – May 14. In the off-season, you don’t have access to the parking area and must park over 1km away at the main gate.
This accommodating park is for everyone including those with disabilities. Bring the whole family for an easy day of fishing and picnicking, with all the necessary facilities.
