Discover Beautiful Landscapes

Explore 485 acres in the Niagara Escarpment. The park features a variety of trails that wander through mature forests and past streams and ponds. Don’t forget to visit the wetland.

Under the summer sun, enjoy a picnic and discover outdoor fun with your family and friends. In winter plan a trip to cross-country ski and snowshoe on groomed trails or skate on a frozen pond. Don’t be surprised if you see white-tailed deer bounding in the woods or hear the sounds of pileated woodpeckers in the trees.
