Get close to nature and enjoy the great outdoors at Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre--1,214 hectares (3,000 acres) teeming with lush vegetation, wetlands, and biodiversity. Observe painted turtles and trumpeter swans among other animals along 25 km (15 mi) of well-marked trails and boardwalks. Guided tours here include canoeing and kayaking, and special nature trail expeditions take you deep into the marshes for a chance to learn about the ecosystem. Head to the interpretive center to see birds of prey demonstrations and resident amphibians. Plan my trip to Midland with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • An interesting place to see nature and enjoy a leisurely walk or to sit and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.  more »
  • It is a beautiful spot. Admire the birds. Some will eat from your hand. Very relaxing. Birds of pray and swans are amazing.  more »
  • Visited for the morning, sunny warm day. Very quiet at the Centre now that he majority of tourists have gone home. A great place to walk around amongst the marshes, over the boardwalk and pathways, ca...  more »

  • Has some great trails with some nice sights. You can buy some seeds for 25 cents to feed the birds and chipmunks with, and overall some nice trails. We also went to see the show with the birds of prey, which was very entertaining and the hosts were great. Good place if you want a nice walk and/or a nice show. (Please don't bring your kids if they aren't interested in this stuff, they will be annoying for others)
  • I had a great experience. A nice little getaway to go with your partner. NOTE: Please don't bring your aggravating, naughty children that misbehave. The parents try to enlighten their children's enthusiasm by bringing them here. Little do they know that their kids aren't interested. In result, they become idle, running all over the place. IF you have children that are interested in Wildlife & beautiful scenery, then, this is the place. On a whole, it's a must see.
  • This place you can Easy spent half a day here by walking through the trails and paddle through the marsh by canoe . The canoe guide Sarah did an excellent job explaining the wildlife there and it is a must. However due to lack of direction signs you can get lost easy at trail junctions
  • Recommend exploring with plant and insect ID book. Fantastic for kids. (I went to their day camp in the 90s; this place is still awesome today!)
  • Very nice park. My 5 years old boy enjoyed it a lot. He could even get to keep an owl on his hand. Unforgettable experience for him. Will go there again for sure.
