Today is Sunday, Nov. 13, 2016 and we decided to take a short drive out into the county area East of Leamington which features vast marsh lands. Hillman Marsh is a real jewel for people who love to get out and do some walking and enjoy a day of viewing numerous types of birds. We rarely take the time to... More

Great for birds in spring where there is a huge flooded impoundment for waterfowl & shorebirds. Experts available several evenings to help identification. Riot of wildflowers in spring & summer. Good for butterflies during the warmer months. Three km. trail through varied habitats including a large freshwater marsh

Great experience. However our first day there it was extremely muddy due to all the rain, but later in the week it had dried up. Definitely worthwhile to visit and spend some time walking.

I come here in birding season and thoroughly enjoy the trails and natural setting. I haven't been there out of birding season but I would imagine it is still a nice place to visit to walk around.

Great place to bird watch and hike with some interesting landscaping and most paths are elevated which makes them drier.

This is a must visit anytime you're in the Windsor area, but a can't miss during the spring migration. Staff are outstanding, birding is exceptions, second only to Pelee in southern Ontario. Had a remarkable adventure, even though the migration was running about a week late this year.

This is the best place ever. Nice trees and nice landscaping. I like how the marsh looks so nice and relaxing. Nothing to dislike about this place.

This is one on the best conservation area hikes I have enjoyed. I love the marsh lands and this one did not disappoint. I would have loved to take the canoe through the marsh and stay longer on my hike but with temps at close to 90 degrees and no breeze that day I was dreaming of air conditioning. No... More
