Lovely conservation area on the Bruce Trail. Rock outcroppings, spring flowers and woods. A little of sanctuary in the out stretching city of St. Catharines....straight up the road from the Outlet mall and on your left. There is parking available.

Simple trails for all ages. Trees, trails, nice and relaxing atmosphere. Interesting class room area, open areas and long drive way. Park where you want. Good place to take the dog for a walk, or yourself.

This local green space is a wonderful place to bet away from the rest of the world, especially in the fall when the colours are so bright. Because it is in the upper bench there are marvelous views to the north of Lake Ontario, the...More
