Many people in Cobourg as well as visiting tourists want to walk around Cobourg – especially the beach and harbourfront areas (but also Historical tours - go to bottom of this page).  If you live here, you may know the good routes but then, maybe not. A map and brochure have been created which show suggested routes plus these are marked with signs. Below is a list of the routes with their length, the map, plus a link to download the brochure.

The signs are at:

  • Peace Park (Forth/Clyde Streets)
  • Ecology Garden (bottom of Hibernia St.) (More on Ecology Garden here)
  • West Entrance to the Victoria Park Boardwalk (bottom of Division St.)
  • East Entrance to Victoria Park (bottom of Church St)

Public Washrooms

  • The Marina Building (bottom of Third St.)
  • Victoria Hall (King St.)
  • Bus Stop (on Albert at Rotary park)
  • Beach Concession Building
  • Donegan Park (bottom of D’Arcy St.)

The four routes listed are;

  • West – loop starts at Peace Park – 1.7km
  • Central  - Victoria Hall via harbourfront and boardwalk to Peace Park then loops back to Vic Hall via King St. - 2.9km
  • Beach – through Victoria Park, along the beach boardwalk and back to Victoria Hall via Rotary Park 1.7km
  • East – starting at East Entrance to Victoria Park at the bottom of Church St, loops via King St, to Donegan Park - 1.5 km

Parking is indicated at Peace Park, the Waterfront (Esplanade), on street at the bottom of Church Street and at Donegan Park.

If all this exercise brings on a heart problem(!), three locations of Automated External Defibrillators (AED) are indicated (Library, Vic Hall and what looks like the YMCA Pool office).
