The park provides a train ride from the information centre to the path where you can walk to the end reaching the lowest point . The lake is beautiful and vast , birds flying around and butterflies hoping all over .

Definitely take the free shuttle service to the southernmost tip. I visited 6 months pregnant and this whole park was full of accessible bathrooms and short distance walks. The Marsh Boardwalk was nice but not shaded and very hot.

We will be back again and soon! We look forward to exploring what the Southernmost tip of Canada has to offer in all of the seasons. Summer held beautil views, Monarch butterflies, calm beaches to swim in, walking trails and lookouts.

Enjoyable peaceful half day spent here exploring the park. Finding the park was challenging as we kept losing GPS signal and there was construction. Allow extra time for getting lost. The admission fee was really cheap $7.80 for one adult, kids are free! We picnicked...More
