I go from time to time to this place, because it is a relaxing walk around the lake. They taking good care of all the decks and walkways. Also awesome to walk in the summer time, because of all the trees.

This is a fun activity to spend a day with kids or a "free" date night. The little museum in the main building area is fun, has lots of models, and information videos aimed at children. The walking paths are fun, and you are almost guaranteed to see an abundance of wildlife whilst walking around in there. I've seen anything... More

There are long and short walking trails around the lake. Also, bird blinds for viewing. We mainly saw ducks, crows and blue or red dragon flies. Others had seen moose and deer occasionally.

We recently visited the Kerry Wood Nature Centre together with part of the adjacent Gaetz Lakes Sanctuary. It is a lovely spot to go for a leisurely stroll and watch for all the varieties of flora and fauna. Unfortunately, we were on a bit of a tight schedule and were only able to walk the Dr. George Trail together with... More

The loop takes you through a variety of terrain including steep slopes/stairs. We happened to come across two moose on the trails, be aware of the variety of wild life you can encounter.

Kerry wood is a great place to go for a nice stroll, nothing difficult as far as the walk goes. On a good day you will see wild life, such as deer, on many occasions moose,fox, and of course water fowl. You can also join all the city paved walking/biking trails right from the parking lot.

Kerry Wood Nature Centre is a wonderful launching point for a day of walking. From Kerry Wood, be sure to walk around Gaetz Lakes. A great suggestion is to bring bikes and hop on the trails along the river... you can't go wrong!

It was a hard winter, lots of snow, so writing a thorough review might be a challenge. The trails that were navigable were easy to walk down for two people and afforded some beautiful views of the parkland. The boardwalk to the observation deck was clear and had safe views of the marshland for all ages and heights. The Centre... More

We took advantage of the nice crisp morning to take a hike. Of course options are more limited in the winter but the scenery is beautiful and if you stick to the paths, it's quite comfortable to maneuver yourself through - no snow shoes required!
