  • We stumbled upon this place quite by accident - I like to look for green places on my phone maps and try to go there - so it was not planned. And I have to say we did drive past it when we were lookin...  more »
  • This park is a great multi-use area. You can bike, walk or run. In the winter you can ski, skate or slide. My son had a lot of fun checking out the water snakes.  more »
  • The habitat is located just north of the city of Kingston and varies in habitat from wetland to planted conifers. Watch out for the trails which are poorly kept, especially after raining.  more »

  • I love this conservation area. I take my dog here a couple times a week. Lots of different trails, you can enjoy anything from 1km -10km. In the summer the trails are perfect for walking, running and biking. In the winter they are great for x country skiing, snow shoeing, walking and running. I suggest bringing your poles as is can get a little slippery. Safe trekking and enjoy!
  • Cutest little conservation park I have ever been to. I was able to feed black-capped chickadees, and they followed me during my walk!
  • This is a lovely place to commune with nature!

Where to stay in Kingston

The most desirable accommodations in Kingston line the waterfront in the city's downtown region, offering views over the wide St. Lawrence River. If you want to immerse yourself in the city's hippest scene, look slightly west to the area around Queen's University, where you'll also enjoy easy access to some of Kingston's most pleasant parks. Those hoping to take some road trips out of the city should consider staying at one of the many motels and guesthouses along Princess Street--there, you're perfectly placed to hit the road and explore the region.
