  • One of my favourite places! Such an awesome experience to feed and see all these wild animals. Makes hiking and walking very exciting and great place for all ages. Great even in the snow and rain. I've been going here since I was a child and some of my greatest memories was here! Should be 10\5 stars 🌟
  • My daughter, girlfriend and I love coming here to walk and fees the birds. Make sure to bring proper feed. Birds like seeds, not bread.
  • Another close and convenient trail overrun by dogs and irresponsible owners. You'll find you are literally tripping over dogs - on and off leash - and stepping through a obstacles course of dog poop. There are designated dog parks, maybe it's time for people and kid friendly trails and parks - aka dogs not allowed!?!?
  • Lovely little conservation area with several paths for exploring. Bring birdseed if you want the songbirds to eat right out of your hand!
  • The amount of wildlife here is amazing! Bring your camera and have it ready all the time. Owls, wild turkeys, deer etc are regulars here.
