The weather was cloudless and sunny when we visited so the walk was especially pleasant. The animal enclosures are generally large so they can get privacy when they need it although a little patience usually pays off. We were visiting from the UK so the animals are generally quite exotic to us and seeing them was exciting. Visitors should be... More

Very nice walk on a boardwalk. Good for a stroller. Bring a snack to share along the way at one of the benches. Live animals to be viewed and friendly staff. Would have gotten five stars except it didn't have all the animals listed so it was a bit disappointing. It is free however and bathrooms were very clean. Will... More

This was a beautiful, well manicured walking trail. Great spot for young families, kids would have a lot of fun here trying to spot the wildlife. A great well protected area for rehabilitation of animals that also allows for a safe environment for children and adults of all ages to see and enjoy. I was somewhat surprised that the elevated...

There is a nice and easy boardwalk all thru the park guiding visitors along all the animals in the park. Some of the animals can be seen really up-close others unfortunately prefer to hide.

Every year since I was a child I've gone to the nature park. I love seeing the animals. I love the idea behind their rehabilitation program. But it's the beauty of the nature walk. This day I was there on a cool day late in the afternoon, and it was the most peaceful, relaxing walk. I recommend going to the... More

The Salmonberry park was about 40 minutes outside of St. John's and well worth the drive. The center rehabilitates many different types of animals native to Newfoundland and Labrador, and allows visitors to get up close with many of them. The main attraction is a 1-2km boardwalk hike that takes you through enclosures containing snowy owls, caribou, bald eagles, osprey,... More

The boardwalk provides a really nice walk through the scenic park seeing Newfoundland wildlife fairly up close. The wildlife they have are ones that have been found injured and now looked after at the park. They are currently in the process of building a new information centre. It took me awhile to locate the old information centre and find that... More

A nice shaded walk on the raised boardwalk and close up views of a number of animals and birds that they rehab after injuries on local roads.

This was an awesome free attraction! The boardwalk is well maintained and is accessible. There was a few times it was a little high without handrails so be mindful of children's stepping. True enjoyed seeing what animals were out and the little information at each station. Was a great outing.
