Fun Facts

  • The park has three trails, split into two sections, and one local history museum on the propery.
    • The recently restored Wetlands-Storey trail has lots of informational panels, and an excellent example of Southern Ontario wetlands flora and fauna. Without reading the signage, it’s about a fifteen minute walk.
    • The Spicer Trail is the most well-known and popular trail. The hills can make it more difficult terrain, but at a walking pace takes about half an hour to complete.
    • Both the Wetlands-Storey and Spicer Trails are accessible from the entrance just off of the Currie Road and Lakeview Line intersection.
    • The final Lookout trail is further down the road and on the opposite side. This one you can drive down (five minutes) or walk (closer to fifteen), and at the end of the loop are washrooms, picnic tables, and a lookout of Lake Erie.
  • Dogs are welcome in the park as long as you keep them on a leash and clean up after them. Garbages are available at most entrances and exits for any waste!
  • From colorful songbirds to recorded sightings of owls there are lots of birdwatching opportunities!
