“Trails ok even in winter”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

It was a hard winter, lots of snow, so writing a thorough review might be a challenge. The trails that were navigable were easy to walk down for two people and afforded some beautiful views of the parkland. The boardwalk to the observation deck was clear and had safe views of the marshland for all ages and heights. The Centre has a nice bookstore with a wide selection of bird books (and other books of course) and the staff was friendly and courteous. Parking was not a problem with a lot for about two dozen vehicles plus an overflow lot available in the summer.

“Beautiful morning stroll”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

We took advantage of the nice crisp morning to take a hike. Of course options are more limited in the winter but the scenery is beautiful and if you stick to the paths, it's quite comfortable to maneuver yourself through - no snow shoes required!

“Walking paths”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

We have had the opportunity to visit this centre every year and experienced many things, from the space exhibition to the wildlife awareness. As a family we have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect that this centre has to offer. The walking paths alone are extensive and definitely worth taking in. A great family outing!

“Great Place to hike and learn”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

We have gone to the centre numerous times and have been impressed with the facility each time. The highlight is definately the preserve in behind. The hike is beautiful and the waterfowl viewing area is second to none. We have seen moose, deer, muskrat and many varieties of birds. You feel like you are miles from the city when you are almost in the middle of it.

“Great nature walk.”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

I love walking this route it is fairly hard as there are lots of hills and steps up and down, but I feel like a get a good workout and I am outside enjoying nature. It is usually fairly quiet so you don't run into a lot of people and then their are tables to sit at in the front in the shade to stretch.
