  • I enter it from Jack Darling Park east of Bexhill entrance due to no parking. Then u can enjoy part of lovely lake walk path and then the start of Rattray. Love all the knolls and views…have seen...  more »
  • Due to Covid, very difficult to remain 2 meters apart on most parts of marsh trails - be sure to wear a mask. Read and follow information/guidance boards located at entrances. Unfortunately...  more »

  • My childhood was filled with memories of long marsh walks and even after all of these years this place is as magical now as it was then. It's a sanctuary of peace away from the busy world and if you're quiet enough and still enough you may be surprised at just how much wildlife you find at home here living their lives in this tranquil paradise. Beavers, deer, turtles, snakes, lots of birds, insects and who knows what other majestic creatures you'll find :)
  • Beautiful park to walk through with tons of wild life and beautiful views! The wooden path is quite near and if the water levels are low, there are a few access points to the water front. Dog friendly as well. Highly recommended on a visit to Port credit area.
  • Great little conservation area. It's free but has limited parking. Can park on streets in some areas, parking at jack darling park (gets super busy on weekends) or parking at the elementary school (best option). The park is not that large maybe takes 1-2 hours to walk around. Has a nice boardwalk with scenic views. Good for bird watching. Connects to jack darling park and the lakeshore trails has a lot of good small beaches to swim in. Good for kids or dog walking.
  • Excellent little place full of nature. Couldn't believe how many animals I saw in the slow wander I took here. Deer, Great blue Heron and a large turtle along with many other birds. Very easy walk as all paths or boardwalks. Suitable for children and elderly, although there are some routes with steps so parts are not suitable for wheelchairs. It backs onto a park as well which has beautiful views of the Toronto skyline across Ontario Lake. Would recommend. I spent about 2 hours here, but the paths can be done very quickly if not stopping for wildlife, probably about 30 minutes.
  • Beautiful natural preserve, bird sightings, trails that go down to the water. Enjoy the beautiful sounds of nature. The marsh path is connected to the park and playground next door. Lovely
