      Joshua's Valley Park is a forest containing many public multi-use paths maintained by the Town of Oakville. The park spans 2 kilometres through the centre of south-east Oakville, Ontario. The park is very family-friendly and is frequented by many locals of the area participating in a variety of activities from trail running, to mountain biking, to hiking. The natural beauty of the park and the creek that runs through it is very evident in the warm months when the various plants bloom, basking the forest in green.

      Mountain bikers local to the area had created a bunch of trails branching out from the south end of the park for people to enjoy, develop their skills and become better riders. These lines centred around the natural dirt "half-pipe". Most of the main features have were flattened by the Town in Spring 2020. Some other mountain bike features can be found if you look hard enough.

      Some trails in the park become quite muddy in wet conditions, especially when close the creek, so use caution. While visiting, please avoid hiking on the various mountain bike features, as the local riders put a lot of hours of dedication into the building and maintaining the mountain bike trails/features. Many of the mountain bike specific lines are built on steep grades, so the builders ask that you avoid riding them in very wet conditions in order to prevent the trails from being washed out.
