  • I have been here many times, both with family and solo. The Huron Natural Area is constantly being improved and having even more added. Just last year they added a new natural playground near the front for children. There are great trails here that are all marked and mapped out, plus some smaller trails/paths you can take to make it even bigger. My last hike took about an hour and was almost 6KM long without going over the same trail twice. Would also be a great spot for dog walking and biking.
  • Beautiful area very pristine. Lots of trails and nature all around. Just a little odd that this place is tucked away in between some Industrial area. You can snow shoe, cross country ski or just take a nice walk in the winter. In the summer you can bike, walk or run the trails.
  • Beautiful area with lots of shade and wide walking paths (albeit quite icy in winter). Great for walking your dog, jogging with a friend, or a solitary thoughtful walk. Also has a sandy play area for kids.
  • Great trails, many to choose from. A huge open area grass with picnic tables plus a covered area with tables and chairs, washrooms and a drinking fountain. A children's play area with equipment that encourages creativity and development. There are a few boardwalks and lookout points over the ponds lots of information plaques. The focus of the nature center is the native heritage with interesting artifacts found on the land
  • Several different well groomed walking trails to enjoy. You will love this beautiful nature park. The colours in the fall are spectacular. The trails are shaded by all the trees so a cooler place to walk in the warmer weather
