     Jerry Lawrence (formerly Lewis Lake) Provincial Park is a great nature retreat without going out of the way.  Its small trail system is well maintained and connects to the Saint Margaret’s Bay trail system.

    The centerpieces are Lewis Lake and Round Lake, small lakes situated on either side of the park.  These lakes are not only completely wheelchair accessible, all facilities are as well.  Facilities include public fishing piers, drive-in picnic areas, benches, and washrooms.  Round Lake is stocked with trout several times per season and makes for a great family fishing outing.

    You can take the trail system and connect on to the Saint Margaret’s Bay trail, ideal for a longer bike trip or walk, and is great for cross-country skiing in winter (be aware of ATV’s)

    The park can quickly and easily be explored by sticking to the shorter park trails which line the lakes.  There are plenty of picnic tables and benches throughout. The central sheltered picnic 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 is 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.
