A fun place to spend 3-4 hours. The playground is very creative and amusing. The sanctuary is very peaceful. ThE inside isn't as interactive as it used to be. Many things not working.

Kerry Wood Nature centre is one of my favourite places to visit. When I need to 'unwind', a 4 km walk around the perimeter, or 30 minutes of stationary wildlife viewing does the job. I've had porcupines cross the trail in front of me, owls...More

Looking for a place to get away without leaving the city. This is a great place to visit. During the winter time, great place to cross country skiing, or snowshoeing. During the summer, there are places to take in a picnic or enjoy a pond.

A great place for families to explore nature in a treed, grassy, Lake and hilly environment 😀👍 Here you can view various birds,moose, beavers,muskrats. They have a great natural playground and a musical area where kids can play drums and xylophone too.
