Hiking and Walking

Hospital Pond Walking Trail, Twillingate

Difficulty Level: Easy

This popular trail around Hospital Pond provides a little more than a km walk with its beautiful gazebos, benches and many varieties of flowers and shrubs. For locals, this walk is part of an active lifestyle routine.

As its name indicates, the hike starts at Twillingate Hospital.  This blog post from TA Loeffler with its map and photos describes her hiking experience on Hospital Pond Trail.

The Hospital Pond Committee is responsible for the beautiful development around the pond: a swimming facility, water fountain, numerous flower boxes and planters, benches and also interpretive panels telling the story of the hospital and other history.

A family and pet friendly walk! In summer kids love swimming here on a warm day.  Bring a picnic and spread a blanket on the lawn and enjoy the hard work of the committee.

Also located adjacent to the trail is the Donald Gates Memorial Dog Park.  Here pooches make friends within a safely fenced park dog area.
