The habitat is located just north of the city of Kingston and varies in habitat from wetland to planted conifers. Watch out for the trails which are poorly kept, especially after raining.

We went here in the evening, and stayed between 5:30-7:30. The sun had finally come out for the day, and I spotted birds right away, with a great find of a Ruby Crowned Kinglet. It was bold and friendly and hanging out right by the activity centre. We went for a walk up to the chickadee feeding area, and spotted... More

This was the third time at this location for a business meeting. Last time was in the summer, so I was able to see a bit of the outside trails and surrounding area. Would love to have more time to see it all. Perhaps next year. So for this trip the occasion was for a meeting in the large hall.... More

I live to go for walks here. There are many different trails to choose from of varying distances. It is well maintained and have lots of trail markers to guide you so won't get lost.

We went there hoping for doing some canoe ... then realized the admin office was closed during the weekend. I did take a short walk around the little lake. We were the only ones there and maybe that is why I felt unsafe. The lake is not as good compared to other lakes close by in Ottawa or Quebec. You... More

We went here over March Break with nieces and nephews, family. Great for something to do. Kids loved it. They also loved the pancakes and treats. Only issue we had was there was no guided tours. There was even a sign for it. But no one was there.

I have been here a few times just to walk the trails and see the wild life. The area is a marsh so the trails are flat but can get wet in places. There is a good choice of trail lengths, and trails will connect to longer trail systems. I recommend visiting on week days when it is quieter, for... More

If you just want to go for a nice watershed hike, this is the place in Kingston to go. The trails are all easy; they're marked, groomed, and have little or no elevation change. Many of them are low-lying so you'll want to plan for some occasional mud if it has rained recently. In winter, the trails are groomed for... More

A beautiful spot to feed little birds and get away from the city. Different trails to walk along, bring the whole family. Can't wait to go back.
