Friends shared this delightful outdoor adventure! Have to know what you’re looking for because it’s in a residential area so check a map/GPS-well sign posted when you get close. Lots of parking and before you talk this walk, an outhouse is available. 2.4 km around the circle. Well packed trail/wide for side by side in either direction. Look out towers to view birds, endangered turtles, water lilies, bulrushes and marsh lands. Very accessible for anyone with walking issues and recommend good shoes and socks. Can do a race walk, stroll along to take pictures or sit on benches provided along the route to just listen to the birds!!! A paradise! We absolutely loved our visit here! Recommend for all ages and abilities.…

Buttertubs Marsh is situated near a major highway and residential areas, yet it is so relaxing and feels like a world away. Nice level walk to do, with some viewing platforms to observe any wildlife that you may come across.

I have seen many different birds on this walk. It is an easy walk, if you are looking for more exercised you can walk around the marsh twice and never be bored.

Buttertubs marsh has a winding trail that meanders around the marsh for probably a couple of miles. There a viewing platforms around the marsh and the occasional wildlife. Parking can be a problem at times as it is adjacent to housing.

It's a marsh and really nothing more. Nature within the city. Listen to some birds and see birds. Some people may enjoy more than I did. Wish I would have saw a turtle. I wouldn't come back, as I would rather walk the harbour for sites and sounds.
