Through the creation of accessible walking trails, CPAC has made Chamberlains Park a safe gathering and outdoor activity area for people of all ages and abilities, especially families, seniors, and the mobility challenged. It is a place that accommodates many different interest groups and provide a place for schools and local daycares to take nature walks, and for local youth groups to work on outdoor badges.
