Scales Nature Park

Nature enthusiast Jeff Hathaway shares a passion for Canada'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. 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. The surrounding 21-hectare park, with 3 km of nature trails, features natural habitats including ponds, wetlands, and hardwood forest. Outreach programs for schools, libraries, birthday parties, and other venues, are conducted around the province.

Plan on an hour to an hour and a half. Place isn't big...but the tour guides are great! Totally worth it.

This is an excellent place! The staff are very passionate and knowledgeable. Our 3- and 5- year old boys loved it, but so did all the adults in the group. We would gladly come back every year.
