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.

This is a great park for families and for photographers. The boardwalk is a nice 3 km walk through the park full of trees, ponds and meadows. It is also a great way to see some of the wildlife found in Newfoundland. We didn't get there by 10am which is when the park warden goes around to feed the animals.... More

This is a lovely place for a walk in the woods. The 3 km boardwalk meanders around trees, meadows, and ponds. If you are fortunate, you will get a glimpse of some of the inhabitants that are convalescing (we saw a snowy owl, great grey owl, lynx, and arctic fox). It is well worth the stop. And it is free.

Arrive when the open at 10 so you can sort of follow the feeding ranger from pen to pen. He told us the marten would come out of his box when he left. True. The moose is named Isabelle. Arctic fox. Albino mink. Very good sightings in the lovely lush green forest carpeted with wildflowers.
