Nothing too strenuous or long, just beautiful wooded trails by the lake and in the background a lovely mansion which, I believe, you can rent out for special occasions. Lots of wildlife to see. Dogs must be on a leash.

We are lucky enough to live within walking distance to the lake where Paletta is located. The grounds are just stunning, (very different during each season) the facility is very historic and full of character charm. Our favourite thing to do as a family is walk down all the way to the lake and go to the left where the... More

If you would like an interesting yet short place to walk/relax and enjoy the lake. This is the place. I saw swans on my last visit. Dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes (gravel/wood chip paths).

I was married at Paletta Mansion and I have a specially soft spot for sentimental reasons, but after since my wedding I attended many functions there in different seasons and was impressed again and again. Grounds are well manicured and visitors respect nature by enjoying it and sharing it with others.

This former family home is located right on the lake and enables one to walk along the shoreline. There are nature trails through natural habitat and benches available throughout the property for viewing the lake, quietly reading a book, soaking up the tranquility of the old homestead.

Drive, bike or walk over to the mansion and enjoy wonderful views of the building, the grounds and lake. It's very quiet and relaxing. Spread a blanket and read or picnic. Just stay away from the bird droppings.

I haven't actually been inside the mansion in years, but the actual park grounds are very nice. There's usually a couple taking engagement pictures anytime I come here. Just a nice quiet, picturesque place to visit.

I have been to this park hundreds of times, and love the grounds and the atmosphere. One day i was there i dropped something on one of the trails and was hopeful that someone turned it in, so i went to the main house to ask a staff member. The woman who approached me was incredibly rude. " WHAT ARE... More
