    Such a well maintained and picturesque boardwalk and path with lots of folks out to enjoy it. Started at the farmers market at Science North where there is lots of parking.

    Kivi Park is a great location to do a variety of outdoor activities and is available to everyone of all ages. Kivi Park is the perfect place to bring your family or friends to venture out into the outdoors and do activities such as hiking, snowshoeing, kayaking, and fat biking. The landscapes and activities that Kivi Park provides make this place a safe and unforgettable experience. One thing that Kivi Park should improve on is its annual pricing. Their hiking trails used to be free to anyone, but now they only offer a year pass that sums up to $100 and their hiking trails cost $9.00 per person, this can become pricey especially for people of the lower class that have a large number of people in their family. Another issue I have with Kivi park is if you want to actually do any of the activities that they offer, such as fat biking and snowshoeing, you have to pay for their equipment that is also quite expensive. If you’re also someone that relies heavily on public transportation, this isn’t the best place for you to visit.

    The trails at the Conservation Area are amazing. There are trails for walking and harder trails for more experienced hikers. The views of Lake Laurentian are breathtaking at any time of the year. I strongly recommend everyone visiting or living in Sudbury to visit this gem!

    In addition to the excellent trails, the facilities are also an interesting place to hold events. Usually always wildlife around

    Awesome campground! Very clean, well maintained, beautiful grounds. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Great, safe campground for families with pets and/or kids or anyone who wants a little piece of outdoor heaven. On the lake with docking facilities. 15 minutes from grocery store, LCBO, beer store, church ...

    I started out on the A Y Jackson visitor center side. Quick easy walk to the viewing platform of the waterfall. This would be ready for anyone that can't bike or tires easily.

    If you want the best views and a good hike park down the road at alt parking and walk up the sand hill.

    This starts off with bike up the hill to somewhat groomed trail to the Bridge and other viewing platform. I would think most Paul's don't make it here since it is a bit of work.

    If you like to hike like I do and enjoy more technical hikes there is also a 2km loop just past the bridge. I ventured Down the rocks to get better views.

    I would recommend good shots for this as the rocks can get slippery even on days it has not rained.

    Hiked the Hawkridge Trail. Very beautiful, rugged trail set in the boreal forest. Sometimes you need to climb over or under fallen trees or cross wet areas by walking on one or more logs. I occasionally had to use my hands to climb up a rocky area. The water source for backcountry campsite #1 is a 5 min walk south of the site, just follow the trail. I don't think campsite #1 is suitable for hammock camping. Saw lots of grouse on the hike out. Loved the whole experience.

    Great place to camp out north of Ontario. Great staff and clean place. The toilets needs some work but better than others out there. Plenty of birds around .Be prepared with bug spray coz it can get crazy during evening time. Quiet lake around and can swim. Network coverage is bad hence perfect for camping.
    Canoe rentals are available at the park office.
    Not so great hiking place. We went to Chutes Park for hikes.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the number and diversity of animals on display at Northern Exotics; it really is a mini-zoo. Reptile enthusiasts will be particularly impressed with the many species of lizards, snakes, turtles, and even crocodilians. They also have parrots, a fennec fox, lemurs, and many other interesting residents. I especially liked the squirrel monkeys jumping around their enclosure, very entertaining. The staff were also very friendly and knowledgeable. Glad to see that these former pets have a good home and are well cared for.

    We visited Moonlight Beach on a beautiful day in November. We had a great time walking along the beach and dipping our toes in the water--our dog loved chasing sticks in the water. We followed that up with a great walk/hike along the main trail. It appears that there are actually a number of trail options. The one we were on was a very "easy trail" but also very scenic. We even crossed over a floating bridge.
    We really enjoyed our afternoon at Moonlight Beach and would definitely return.

    Nice place to visit, you can walk throught this area, nice walking trails, and you get to observe nature left undisturbed. There were ducks, Canada geese and swans swimming neaby on the lake. Nice and relaxing.

    Very beautiful setting with a walking trail. Lots to look at, my 3 year old very much enjoyed it. Lots of parking. Will definitely be back when the weather is nice enough for a swim.

    I've been on many public trails and I have to say Rotary park is well maintained and well kept. The view is nice when you reach the top, but it can get chilly quickly, as it is quiet windy (so bring a jacket). If you have an hour and nothing to do, I would recommend this hike as it isn't very difficult and the view of Sudbury is nice.

    A good thing about this trail is that almost 1 km of it is wheelchair accessible. It is beautiful and you get to walk over creeks, through wooded ravines. Everything in a mixed forest
