feels like you're out of the city, lots of trails to walk along, you can even end up on Lake Ontario beach...very peaceful and full of wildlife. Restrooms also available which is a bonus

many different paths to choose from. Go further out to see the live turkeys and the deer. birds will eat right from your hands and chipmunks and squirrels will take the nuts right from your hand.

If looking for something to do on a quiet Sunday, and the weather is good, this is a good bet for getting the kids out for some exercise. Note that there is a lot of wildlife, sometimes crossing your path, so dogs are not allowed.

We go here every once and awhile and always have a good time, tons of wilderness and some good walking trails. Early morning I find the best.

Lynde Shores is a great location for your out door needs. The path is extremely easy to follow. There is room for all. The parking, although not huge is adequate for all.
