Harwood Beach is on the shore of Rice Lake. This shallow lake may look "weedy" to newcomers, but all those underwater plants make Rice Lake a great place for fish and a warm place to swim. It was once an important source of wild rice for the area's Aboriginal community. Rice Lake is the largest of the Kawartha Lakes. The Trent River carries its waters out to Lake Ontario.

Whenever I encounter stressful situations I like to cycle alongside the Highland Creek all the way down to he Waterfront Trail where the creek then meets Lake Ontario and just relax on the large boulders and listen to the waves.
