Scales Nature Park
Nature enthusiast Jeff Hathaway shares a passion for his country's indigenous animals—specifically amphibians and reptiles. At Scales Nature Park, staff and volunteers introduce visitors of all ages to more than 300 cold-blooded specimens from more than 60 species, most of which are native to Canada. The wildlife-conservation facility also houses exotic reptiles and amphibians donated by their owners or seized from private homes by protective agencies. All of these creatures coexist in a 21-hectare park, which represents natural habitats ranging from ponds and wetlands to hardwood forests and hemlock groves. An indoor nature centre showcases some animals in custom-built enclosures and serves as the venue for a range of programs, including hands-on animal demonstrations, guided walks, and guest lectures.
“Booking a time is helpful to ensure there is a staff to tour with you. Very hands on. Informative. As long as you live reptiles it's great!!! ”
“It's not a big place, nothing like you would see for an adventure place in Toronto. Good for younger kids (6,7,8). Staff is really nice and will answer all questions. ”
“Great hands on experience kids loved it. ”
