Nature lovers and hiking enthusiasts now have a new reason to visit Nayler’s Common Wetlands and Trails in Marmora. Thanks to the initiative of the Marmora and Lake Environmental Advisory Committee, the leadership and expertise of Curtis Trimble, Manager of Parks and Recreation, and the financial support of the Toronto Dominion Bank’s Friends of the Environment Foundation, the Commons now boasts a new observation platform that overlooks the marsh. “We are proud of the work that has been done and of the partnerships that have made this project possible” stated Deputy Reeve Cimprich.


Easily accessed from the Red Trail, this viewing site offers an unobstructed view of the wetlands, presenting opportunities for the public to observe the flora and fauna that live on the marsh.


Special thanks go to contractors to Corey Burgess and Brad Dorie who gave their time and skill to the construction of this project and to the Stewardship Youth Rangers, of the Peterborough Youth Program funded by MNR who provided the much appreciated manual labour.

The Commons can be accessed from both Matthew Street (Highway #7) and Drummond Park. Both of these locations provide information brochures and show maps of the trails and the location of the observation platform.

Stay tuned for further updates to new developments on Nayler’s Commons!
