  • Great! My in-laws came from Russia for 2 weeks. It was their first time in Canada and they wanted to experience Aboriginal Culture - but this was fall, far away from all the Aboriginal summer festivities and etc. This was a place that my wife and I took them to and they loved it. Lots of exhibits that you can touch, hold, feel; living homes from centuries past that you can enter and where you can sit, as well as wonderful trails, nature and beautiful trees - all contributed to a great experience. Recommended time for visit: 2 hours.
  • Great park, very family friendly and lots of different types of areas to explore. Learn about native indians, check out the super deep lake, and walk on a handful of different paths. You'll have a great time!
  • Beautiful conversation area, very large with lots of walking trails, sitting areas and viewpoints. Perfect way to spend a day with friends or family.
  • Beautiful lake with a nice boardwalk trail that goes around the lake and plenty of historical first Nations architecture.
  • Great place to get back to nature and get in touch with some aboriginal culture. Maintenance crews need to step up their game though, lots of walking hazards on wood bridge trails. The interpreter staff are wonderful though.
