  • Love this place! Very well maintained and we see new trails and improvements every year. The trails are well kept, flat and easy to walk for all ages. The educational programs are fantastic and this is a great place to spot and learn about local nature (especially the birds and frogs which are easy to find and fun for kids to spot!)
  • Great place to go for a walk / run with easily marked trails. Place is well maintained by the parks staff with a variety of live events and education during the summer. Just be aware that during the spring to midsummer parts of the park may be closed due to heron nesting.
  • Great relaxing and educational environment.love the little exhibition and the program.always a good drop inn ,good to be informed about the local environment and animals.great speaker and info evening .
  • I love this place for a nice walk. Great for bird watching. Attaches to the Vedder Rotary trail so you can extend your walk.
  • Small reserve with lots of birds and particularly picturesque water. Watch out for horse doo.

Where to stay in Chilliwack

A mixture of motels and homey bed and breakfasts make up the bulk of accommodations in Chilliwack. Several of these cluster around the main intersection in town, where Young Road and Yale Road meet--stay here to be close to the town's shops and other limited amenities. If you want to be closer to the airport, stay south of the center, along the Trans-Canada Highway. For natural scenery and a tranquil ambiance, you can't beat the bed and breakfasts on the Fraser River, to the west of town.
