If you love nature, you'll love Lynde Shores. It is a nature photographer's haven, with a large variety of flora and fauna! Great experience for bird watchers.

Beautiful but can get very busy. Lots of birds, chipmunks geese and ducks. You have to pay for parking and bring your own bird seed. Construction going on Victoria street which makes it challenging to enter and exit. No dogs allowed😔

Lots of birds to see and nice walk in the woods. Fun to watch ducks and geese landing in the water. Swans too.

Very easy trails for all ages. Bring bird seed and watch as the chickadees land on your hands to feed. Great experience for young kids.

Nice area to walk around and plenty of wild life to see (cute little chipmuncks especially!). If you come during nice weather weekend afternoons it is bound to be pretty crowded and parking is very limited. Also there is a small charge for parking.
