We arrived around noon and walked around the trail. It took around an hour to go through the entire park and we saw a lot of wildlife. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The boardwalk really helps you walk through the rocky terrain. There are washrooms and a gift shop.

I really enjoyed the comfort of walking along the board walk and viewing wildlife which couldn't survive in the wild. Favourite for me was the Great Horned Owl because one was perched right by the fence for a really close look.

The Salmonier Nature Park rehabilitates animals that are native to this area. They have a hike which is mostly (all!) boardwalk and you can go through and, hopefully, see many animals. It is NOT a zoo. Animals can hide or be out of your visual range if they choose. They do, however, have moose, caribou, lynx, owls, eagles, martins and fox. The range of animals may change depending on who they get that needs protection and care.

We were there in the afternoon and it is a very nice hike for about an hour or an hour and a half. They have a center from which you start the hike, and the upstairs part of the center has a polar bear and brown bear with information about each animal.
This is a very interesting stop and we enjoyed it. There is no entry fee. Snacks can be had at the nature center at the entrance.

Warm day with lots of sun so we were told up front that most nothern animals would be in hiding. I think we saw just about everything from bald eagles to a moose. Never expected something like this in Newfoundland.

We visited a couple of years ago, but just reviewing the park now. It was a fascinating place and my wife & I spent a couple of hours there watching the wildlife. There is a nice trail that takes you through the park to see the animals, most of which were injured or abandoned and have found a new home at the park. Great work!
