I spent some time this week finding us new areas to paint.  We’ve painted here quite some time ago, and I can’t believe how much the vegetation has changed.  There is quite a bit of fall colour here.  I know you are just going to love this location.  Quite a few people can paint from the tower.  There are 360° of great views.

Weather: 

It’s getting cooler, make sure you layer up.  Here is a link to a good weather site that gives long range, and hourly, updates on the weather conditions.

Important Information about this location:

There are no washroom’s available at this location.  Just north of this location there is a Tim Horton’s, in nearby LaSalle.

There are no handrails on this board walk.  This maybe an issue with people who are not steady on their feet.  However, it is wide enough for two people to walk down.  If you are setting up on the boardwalk you should ensure that people can easily pass you.

Please find all information about our paint out at the link below.  You can also subscribe to our weekly email notices at the following link.

Directions: Here is a link to my customized Google  map to this location I’ve used a generic starting point of the on ramp to EC Rowe at Howard Ave.  https://tinyurl.com/Petite-Cote-Map

NOTE:  Google does not have this park marked, so you will not be able to find it without using my map.

The view of the sign that marks this conservation area maybe blocked.  So take is slow.  The parking area is also a local mail pick up location.  If you reach the intersection for Malden Road (there is a traffic light) you’ve passed the area and will need to turn back.
