  • The best part is that the local wildlife are used to human interaction (not sure if good or bad, but definitely fun and cute for the kids). Bring a big bag of peanuts and watch the chipmunks (sometime...  more »

  • 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 🌟
  • Awesome, affordable (free) place to visit with a family. It gets busy but what do you expect. Bring some peanuts and the chipmunks and squirles will eat from your hands. I've also had several Blue Jays and other birds land on me and eat from my hands. I love this place.
  • I love this place. So much wildlife. Bring some bird food (not bread) and hold your hands out steady & little Chickadees will land on your hand to eat. It's just magic. Lots of places for comfortable hiking. Wild turkeys, ducks, geese, chipmunks, and a lot of different birds surround you. Great place to bring kids.
  • I went to this park over 12 years ago and it was one of the most memorable experiences for me as a child. I’ve visited again recently and it was a little neglected but there were a lot of animals there were seeking your attention for food. This is say they were very greedy but there were geese, raccoons, squirrels, chipmunks, Blue Jays, Cardinals. The wild turkeys were the scariest in away because they came running towards you. Definitely say this is great for kids if they like animals
  • Lovely grounds, well kept, lots of animals. Just a great conservation area. Great place for a sunny day with friends or family. Or a nice solo jaunt to reflect on life. I have seen countless turkeys, chipmunks, raccoons, lots of birds of all shapes and sizes. They even will fly right into your hands. Always bring bird seed!
