Once called Milne Creek after the first European settler in the area, Wilket Creek is a tributary of the Don River that has largely been left in a natural state. The path through the park is popular with cyclists and walkers since it leads to Edwards Gardens
Wilket Creek park is well-known for its mature coniferous and deciduous forest communities. Depending on soil moisture, light, and orientation of the ravine slopes, mature stands of Eastern Hemlock, Sugar Maple, American Beech, Red Oak and Hop Hornbeam thrive along the valley walls.
