Nestled between Lake Ontario and the Niagara Escarpment, Royal Botanical Gardens’ Cootes Paradise offers nature lovers access to a 320-hectare river-mouth marsh, glacial plateaus, 16 creeks and 25 kilometres of shoreline through its 18-kilometre trail system. The Marsh Boardwalk provides access to the Spencer Creek Delta, one of the largest creek deltas on Lake Ontario.
Look closely and you’ll also discover some new residents that have created quite a stir with local birdwatchers: the first bald eagles to hatch on the Canadian shoreline of Lake Ontario in over 50 years! Paddlers will want to make use of the canoe launch located at Princess Point.
