PHOTOS: Magical mystery walk through Bell Park

“I have been walking in Bell Park admiring the trilliums and ferns but this weekend I discovered an added attraction,” writes Janice Blain, who sent along the photos you see on this page.

“Someone has, or some people have, turned the woodland walk into a magical mystery tour with pretty painted stones placed along the paths.  I imagine they are the work of at least two children and would like to thank them for sharing their artwork and adding such a lovely surprise to my walks.”

“I took some photos to share with your readers and would recommend that, they too, walk the paths in Bell Woods to see for themselves the beauty of nature plus these colourful painted stones.”

Great advice Janice, thanks for sending along these photos!

  1. I think that might have been Bayview school that is nearby to Bell Park. I am a leader with Scouts Canada, and our meetings are held at that school, and I noticed rocks much like those there a couple of weeks ago.

  2. The children of Stittsville United Church have been painting rocks and have gone over to the park a few times this year and placed their rocks in the park. They did there last placement on Sunday May 14. They will be pleased to hear that people are enjoying them.

  3. These are indeed the rocks that were painted by the children at Stittsville United Church. The idea behind these “love rocks” is that they lift the spirits of the people who see them. I’m thrilled that they work. Thank you so much, Janice, for sharing your discovery with Stittsville Central so that even more people can enjoy the love. The children will indeed be very happy to hear that their creations are being seen as a magical addition to the park.

    1. Thank you Eileen. I am delighted to discover the source of these beautiful rocks.
      Thank you so much to all the young artists who shared their love rocks with us.
      Janice
