A gorgeous area of conservation with wild birds, butterflies, right next to Lake Ontario. A beautiful walk. Paths made up for walking and cycling. We'll maintained. Protection of turtle eggs by the conservationists. Wetlands area habitats also well preserved.

This was a very nice park with clearly marked walking trails. We saw lots of wildflowers and birds and had an amazing view of Lake Ontario in the late afternoon. The trails are not challenging, but very pretty. Parking was reasonable and there are two lots to choose from.

Lots of nicely paved trails led to a fairly enjoyable walk looking for birds and other animals. The parking machine didn't work.

This is a local gem… that unfortunately everyone knows about! The trail system is well marked, and even the longest trail can be completed in less than 45 minutes. The place can becoming unbearably busy during peak hours (ex. Beautiful weekend, moderate temperatures = way too many people!). TIPS: Consider parking on Halls Road, to possibly avoid the busy parking lot on Victoria. Bring seeds to hand feed the birds year-round. During spring assume you need rubber boots—many of the trails are mucky. There’s a canoe/kayak launch available May 15-September 15. Lastly, PAY THE PARKING FEE! Even if you park on Halls, on your hike you’ll walk past the main lot. Places like these don’t pay for themselves. Every dollar counts!

A small conservation area which is BIG in beauty. We saw a deer family within this conservation area, once we walked deeper into the trails. The trails are wide and open, so it makes it easy to walk with young kids and also stroller friendly. In addition, do not forget to check out the Chickadee Trail, where you can feed tiny birds right out of your own hands! The birds are super brave and fly onto your hands and quickly eat the seeds and fly out! Make sure to bring your own sunflower seeds for this feeding.

A nice place to feed the birds and ducks. If you walk away from the crowd you will see the wild turkeys and deer.

This used to be a really enjoyable, quiet place to enjoy nature. Now it is crammed with cars and people. You can hand feed the birds but not waterfowl. People ignore the rules. Bird seed everywhere. Covid spoiled this place too!

We enjoyed walking the trails and feeding various birds, ducks, geese and squirrels. It was especially nice to see a free roaming deer.

Great place to watch birds . Blue Jays, Chicakdees, American Finch and a Crdinals. We also saw chipmunks, racoons and wild turkeys. Carry bird seeds and watch the chickadees eat from your palm. The Cranberry marsh is a great spot for other birds. We also saw few Mute swans here.

As someone who grew up in Whitby I used to visit this park all the time but over the years the quality has declined drastically.
