Linley Valley Cottle Lake Park is wilderness park located between Departure and Hammond Bay. The network of trails within the park will take you through various landscapes from forested trails to valleys, fields and rocky knolls. The city managed portion of the parkland includes groomed trails and maintained boardwalks.

It is important to note that there are various parcels of land owned by different groups so best to stay to the groomed trails if you are not familiar with the area.
