This is a must in Happy Valley Goose Bay. Well done, beautiful boardwalk. We saw a gorgeous fox here one morning. And we had a great run here. Watch out for bears :)

Nice easy walk along very well constructed boardwalk through some first, marshy areas and a small part by a beach (which you can go onto). Everyone from our cruise who did it enjoyed it and was impressed. It's not life changing - but it is very very pleasant. Frankly there isn't much else in the town so this is a must!

When finished, if you turn right down the main road a bit there is a restaurant/sports bar called Bentleys. OK for lunch (I suspect comfortably the best bet in town)

Just walked the completed boardwalk with my daughter. Beautiful and peaceful spot to visit. I have visited in early morning, mid day and evening. It’s a calming atmosphere filled with Labrador wildlife and many species of birds. I’ve also seen beaver, muskrat, and ducks. Healthy waters Labrador has a list on their Facebook page of those species of birds that’s been spotted down there. Great place to go!
There is also a floating dock and people have been able to take their kayak or canoe for a row.
It’s good to see our wetlands being protected and celebrated

Lovely elevated walkway that weaves through the Island, several places to sit and enjoy the views which were stunning with all the fall colors.

The boardwalk runs alongside the Churchill River until it forks left to the beach. Turn right to loopback in a circle to your starting point and you will see woods, streams, and wetlands. The route along the river is complete but the loopback is intermittent so expect a few wet spots and some areas that need repair. I took me about an hour or so and I was in no hurry. I enjoyed the views of the Churchill river and the wetlands the most.

There seemed to still be some work to do when I was there but it offers a great walk and view. A little gem in the area. I feel this will be a great place to be when the leafs begin to change.
