Thames Park is located close to the downtown core of London, Ontario and it is the starting point for the latest Visual Running Tour!
I started off at the Wortley Road entrance and ran past the playground and community pool. I went over the main bridge to get to the other side of the river.
This is where the Thames Valley Parkway (TVP) continues.
The TVP is a fully-accessible trail that is good for strollers, rollerblades, skateboards, and of course, runners.
A few bicyclists zoomed passed me this afternoon as well. But I always make sure to stick to the right side of the trail for just that reason.
This is where I started off running The Thames Valley Parkway last time. There are 40 kilometers of linked trails. Maybe I should try to run the whole route, bit-by-bit this summer.
I’m not a big fan of paved trails but one that traverses the entire city is a great idea. And one that follows the river is beautiful.
