This small park has a very nice 2.7 km walk on boards through woods. There are various animals in need of care as this is the only refuge in newfoundland and Labrador which provides for injured wild animals. The animals change but while we were there there were owls, moose and caribou. A good place to stop and stretch your... More

We went as first time visitors to Canada as we were desperate to see a Moose. The day we visited the weather was lovely, and the boardwalk makes it easy walking the trail around the park. The animal enclosures appear large and well maintained, the nature park rehabilitates animals and so some enclosures were empty hopefully meaning they are doing... More

In the processing of returning to St. John's from a day of sightseeing we stopped at this park an hour or two before close. We only stopped because we saw the sign. It was free to enter but we made a $10.00 donation upon exiting. It is a very relaxing walk right in the middle of a very densely forested... More

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
