Ah, the Baille Ard Trail-centrally located in Sydney’s south end and is ideal for walking, jogging, and bird-watching. It has two fresh water brooks and 14 acres of mixed forest.
And this Halloween, it’s home to hungry cannibalistic people who only come out at night.
The Southend Community Center and Baille Ard Trail Society have created “The Haunted Woods Walk” around the theme of “The People Of The Woods”.
Visitors, in this case adults and older children, will be led through the trail by a ghoulish tour guide on Friday, October 28, and Saturday, October 29, starting around dusk. As someone who worked on the event warned us, “Some scenes may be frightening to some people.”
For anyone looking for a less intense experience or who are actual children, organizers have a not so scary woods walk Saturday afternoon, October 29, from 1 pm to 4 pm for younger kids base upon familiar fairy tales.
The main entrance for the Baille Ard Trail is located on Cottage Road, behind Sherwood Park Education Center, and is only three kilometers from downtown Sydney. Washroom facilities, Food Service and onsite parking are available.
Tickets are available at any NEEDS Convenience Store in Sydney or Sydney River and at the Southend Community Center. Ticket prices for the evening are $7 and for the day time are $5.
