Lots of trails to wander around the pond or to amble under the trees on the Bruce Trail loop. From the summit you can see Toronto and Niagara Falls (towers and mist). Even on a cold dull day it was a pleasant excursion for a...More

It's so green here, and the grasshoppers leap out of the grass all around you. Climb the hill to the very top and turn, and you'll see all of the peninsula laid out for your viewing pleasure. I love it here.

An excellent site in St. Catharines that allows the hiker to join up with the Bruce Trail system or to hike a local side loop. A nice site that has views of the city below, Lake Ontario and the surrounding area. The site itself is...More

I walk here now and then. The area is not particularly beautiful, but there is a lot of space if you like that. The north side of the site has entrance to Bruce Trail which goes through local woods, and the small artificial lake is...More

This naturalization site sits atop and old landfill. It is slowly returning to nature. There are lots of hiking trails, and one place offers a scenic lookout over the city of St. Catharines. There is also a pond with waterfowl on the site. There are...More

The Glendridge Quarry Naturalisation site was an old landfill. Surprisingly it doesn't smell. There are a few great gazebos there. Even a nice little lake with a deck on it. The terrain is flat. If you head to the northernmost border of the park, the...More
