Things to Do in Corner Brook
Corner Brook Stream Trail
The Corner Brook Stream Development Corporation (CBSDC) is a non-profit, community oriented development agency with the mandate to develop and maintain a public walking trail system within Corner Brook. The network started with a few trails within the heart of the city, and has expanded over time to the outlying wilderness sections of the stream. In addition to the actual trail-beds, CBSDC has developed the supporting infrastructure of pedestrian bridges, staircases, walkways, viewing platforms, and rest areas. The trail system continues to increase, both in size and popularity. All development occurs under full regulatory approval of all applicable jurisdictions, under the CBSDC guiding principles of environmental stewardship and conservation.
