  • Awesome place, paved trail attracts all types of adventurers, all seasons. Good place to catch migrating birds and other wildlife.
  • Great for fishing without a boat. Lots of wildlife. And great walking paths
  • It was a beautiful park. I loved walking around and seeing the natural environment. I will definitely be going back
  • I love Morraine Hills. I went here as a kid and didnt remember but when I returned as an adult and saw the American Indian exhibit in the park office I remembered some from when I was a kid. I love the exhibit as Im really into that culture. There are plenty of trails to hike. Very peaceful. I loved nature when I was a kid and want to reconnect with Morraine Hills.
  • Such a huge park and it's lovely. I hang out here with my friend and we go on walks and just chat about life. It's so incredibly peaceful and you almost feel like you're in another world when you're here. Sometimes there can be crowds of other people and it might seem somewhat trafficy but that's to be expected and certainly the place is big enough to share. Definitely would recommend to any nature lovers or just peiple looking to enjoy the outdoors. Also fun for kids and families!
