    Wonderful experience. I was fascinated by Science North. It is built into the hill side and each level had easy access whether you walk up the ramp, use the elevator or stairs. Around every corner and nook is something fun to learn. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable. The interactive displays are user friendly. Overall , a great experience and highly recommend as a must see experience if you are in Sudbury .

    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

    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.

    We actually camped at Halfway in July and August. The July trip was good but there were still many insects. The trip in August was much better for bugs. The beach is sandy and shallow . The water was warm. There are several lakes that can be paddled. There is good fishing. We caught four pike. The staff is friendly and the store is well stocked. One trail was closed. There are two campgrounds. The wild rose campground is fairly ose to the highway and can be noisy. There are what I believe to be grouse walking around at campsites. I recommend this park

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Came to this arena to watch the Sudbury Wolves as a fan of the opposing team. I received the usual chirping and heckling from the home team fans as would be expected in any arena, which was all in good fun. Nothing ever crossed the line I'd say. YMMV if you're a fan of a division rival though, as with all teams.

    I was just barely able to get parking across the arena an hour before puck drop. $5 to park there, not sure about how many other places are available so please plan ahead.

    I probably won't make the trip again due to it being several hours away from home one-way, but good arena nevertheless! Cannot go wrong with hockey in Canada, and the tickets are reasonably priced for Major Junior hockey.

    This park has 1.5 km of sand beach. Its shallow and warm. The park is fairly small and has good paddling and fishing options. The staff are friendly. There is no store but there is a motel up the road. The highway is right beside the park and has a railway crossing. The train has to use a whistle. We heard as early as 7:30 am and as late as 9:40. The dog beach is just as nice as the regular beach. There is hiking trail to a waterfall outside of the park just down the road. If you want to swim or paddle this is a great park if you can live with the train and highway noise.
