About this Walk

Ernest Cashel, Victoria Square and Devil’s Playground

Meet the locals who called this area home, learn about the towns and businesses that predated the communities of Applewood and Penbrooke, meet an American outlaw on the run for murder and discover the truth behind the site known as Devil’s Playground. Please note that this is a long walk (about a 3.5 km loop). A great family event for ages 12 and up!

Keep in mind that Elliston Park has two entrances. We’ll meet at the entrance off of 17th Avenue and 60th Street SE (you’ll see the windmill). Look for the tour guide by the intrepretive signage near the parking lot.
