For over 30 years, this popular wide sealed pathway has been a favourite for Whitby residents. The walkway travels through parkland settings, areas of native bush and exotic deciduous trees, alongside a stream, past a playground, and around the rear of properties and Discovery School.

Stretching from Postgate Park to Samuel Marsden Collegiate School near the former Duck Creek Golf Course, it's an easy walk with underpasses for crossing all major roads, making it safe for all users. This is a great one for wheelchairs/mobility scooters, prams, bikes and buggies and children on trikes, as well as for walkers and joggers. Take a picnic and enjoy the children's playground at the Discovery Drive end, or head up to the Whitby Lake and Shopping Centre and feed the ducks. There are many alternative paths leading onto or off the walkway, so you can vary your route as you wish.
