  • Although my grandchildren are 6 and 10 years of age they still enjoy running around at the John Janzen Nature Centre on a rainy morning or afternoon. It is pretty good value for the money..dont forget...  more »
  • Our grandchildren love this place! Inside is a great area where they can climb, go down slides, pretend they are squirrels hiding their acorns, see where the beaver lives in his dam and get a chance t...  more »

  • Awesome facility for young kids! There is a nature themed indoor playground that is perfect for kids! It's not well known about compared to other playgrounds and a totally reasonable price. Plus on the other side of the facility is a learning area where the kids can see fish, snakes, and salamanders, do crafts and explore. Super fun!
  • i remember going here when i was in kindergarten only 8 years ago i was looking at the pictures and my memories struck i remember it like it was yesterday
  • Fantastic playplace. Keeps the kids busy and tires them out. Could use a coffee/snack bar for the parents. Went on a short guided nature walk and it was very educational as well as fun for the kids.
  • Simple, and not too large, especially at end of season or just a random drop in.. the staff here was fantastic... free to go look around without kids, the outdoor trails behind the place are great for a short walk and they have tons of back country mountain bike trails cut in everywhere as well, you can go for a 20 minute walk, or a 2 hour tromp through steep woods...must be beautiful in the snow, was lovely on a fall day. Looking forward to seeing the rooftop garden in the spring/summer. Some good educational buys in the gift shop and indoor opportunities for kids to play n learn make it a great stop with a few munchkins. Cheap as heck too.
  • Wish there was more programming for adults here, but it's a great place to bring kids and burn off some energy. Go on a day with drop in programs to get the most bang for your buck
