Sutherland Campus Trails Renewal Project

Fleming College is undertaking a project to enhance and expand the recreational trail system located around its Sutherland campus so that the public, students, faculty and staff can enjoy a scenic and safe stroll or jog in the wilderness just steps away from its buildings.

This trail system is made up of a collection of approximately 6km of wilderness paths that were originally created in the 1980s for use by the cross-country running program. Since then trail usage has increased to include training for the College paramedic, firefighter and police foundations programs, provincial cross country running competitions, charity events and general recreational use by the public. The trails are also the home of Aboriginal student services' tipi.

Development of the trail system is well underway with enhancements being made to include new pathways, wayfinding signage, 50 benches, a reflection garden and more. In addition, a fully accessible 1.5 km loop has been added. The newly renovated trail will appeal to all ages and abilities, connect our communities, and create a unique legacy for future generations.

This project provides the opportunity to recognize a loved one by naming a bench or tree in their honour. See Benches and Trees Program for more details.
