“Over before you know it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

Great place to have a leisurely walk with all the bird watching and beauties of nature. Approx. 2.2 kms around the marsh but it's over before you know it.
There are a couple of lookout platforms that get you closer to the marsh and a better look at the water fowl.
Bring your camera and enjoy the walk, it is relaxing and a fairly easy hike.

“easy walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

this was the first 'hike' I took my Brownie pack on and a great walk for grandkids and grandmas. Everyone loves to feed the birds and there are plenty to choose from.

“Nice little park for a short walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

Buttertubs is a great trail if you are wanting a short, easy walk. The trail is about 2 km. Along the trail you will see benches, and an observation tower. Great for bird watching. A little piece of nature in central Nanaimo. No dogs or bikes permitted.

“Great for birdwatching”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

One of Nanaimo's best birdwatching areas. The wetlands provide excellent habitat for waterbirds and the wooded areas usually have a variety of sonbirds.

“A nice walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Easy walking trails, some wildlife. In January on a nice Sunny day.
Should be more wildlife and birds in the spring for a return visit.
