I had driven by the Nature Park many times and wondered about the facility. Last Sunday my family and I decided to drive from St. John's and explore the facility. The main building is great. A few animal exhibits, a clean building and very friendly staff. The trail is easily accessible by a winding boardwalk that takes you through the... More

The 2 km boardwalk through forest and bogs is filled with wildlife which is there for rehabilitation. The boardwalk is suitable for strollers or electric wheelchairs. There are elevation changes which would make it tough for a regular wheelchair. Beautiful area and friendly staff in a visitor center with artwork and natural displays.

Great place to visit. The whole purpose of this park is to rehabilitate any birds or animals that are found sick or injured in Newfoundland in as close to natural enclosures as possible. As a result, some of the enclosures will be empty as these animals are doing fine. We were lucky enough to visit shortly after one of the... More

Plenty of interesting animals to see, though patience is needed as many of them are quite shy - we did not see them all for this reason. But we did get to see lots, including moose (even though it's not native to Newfoundland!) Informative visitor centre and friendly staff - also, it's free, and not too far off the Trans-Canada...

Went to SNP on a cooler morning. Only about 35 mins drive from St John's, arrived around 11:00. Boardwalk is awesome, great for strollers, but some areas don't have railings, something to keep in mind with little ones. Saw a snowy owl pretty quickly, then multiple caribou. Then a few exhibits we couldn't spot the animals. Saw another horned owl,... More

We love the Salmonier Nature Park. We go at least a few times every year. It's about 3 kilometres to get around the park, but it's all boardwalk, so it's wheelchair/stroller accessible. Sometimes you'll go and see tons of animals, and other times you will hardly see anything at all. It depends on the weather, time of day, how noisy... More

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
