  • This year Wye Marsh has finally opened up in the evening with moonlight canoeing in October. There's no general admission and you must pre book and the openings are limited. The experience is amazing....  read more »

  • A reserve of wildlife caught between city and highway, where it is more than unlikely to have the chance to meet one of the countless animals we see very well (and way bilingual french-English) on billboards, except to attend the feeding of raptors kept in captivity. We hiked on most of the paths of this park fairly banal if not the beauty of the Marsh. Poorly maintained roads and especially very badly signposted as soon as we walk away. The given plan is too imprecise and leads sometimes to dead ends. A little expensive for a walk of 3 hours maximum.

  • A very beautiful area with a pleasant walk a top the Marsh. The 45min to 1hr canoe ride was only $8 and absolutely terrific. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, striving to answer any question you have about the Wye Marsh.
  • Beautiful place a must see for sure if you are in the vicinity, they do canoe tours as well and there is a nice bike trails outside. Strongly Recommend
  • Great for viewing/photographing wildlife. Swans, Ospreys, Herons, Ducks, Beavers to name a few. Good educational programs. Special events.
  • I've visited Wye Marsh a few times over the years and enjoyed the experience every time. The drive up there is scenic and beautiful and the facilities are well managed and well put together. Feeding the chickadees is delightful! The falconry display is also excellent! Great job :)
