Nice area to walk around and plenty of wild life to see (cute little chipmuncks especially!). If you come during nice weather weekend afternoons it is bound to be pretty crowded and parking is very limited. Also there is a small charge for parking.

I have brought my children to Lynde Shores a number of times and they throughly enjoy it, but as a photographer, I generally come here by myself. Most of the trails are packed gravel, and suitable for all weather travel. The Chickadee trail can get...More

We love to go here on a nice day, morning or afternoon. We've been going since before we have kids. We take bird seed (not bread, but the higher grade seed we feed our own birds in the backyard). We always do the bird walk...More
