Enjoying an early evening paddle at Cootes Paradise. The 250-hectare wetland is part of Hamilton's Royal Botanical Gardens. Cootes Paradise provides a mix of running and walking trails as well as hiking, with narrow paths and windings. It puts you into the trees and out towards the water 5 minutes later. It makes for a very great place for the morning, but if you are going to go when the sun is going down, be sure you bring bug spray!
