What a great spot for kids! Lots to see and some animals blend in . We were lucky enough to see a marten, groundhog, moose,eagles, geese, caribou, owls, gray jays. It's free!!! It was interesting to see fiddleheads and pitcher plant. You can start at anytime and go quickly or make it a relaxing stroll and watch the otter working... 更多
We debated coming off the highway for this as it didn't have a huge web presence or reviews. So glad we did! It was excellent! So much care and thought has gone into the exhibits. Instead of going to a Zoo, this is a series of 16 enclosures featuring animals being rehabilitated. Good signage and info for each animal and... 更多
This is an amazing walk into a stunningly beautiful and quiet forest. Along the way the chance to see animals in the wild adds to the fun. The staff are wonderfully informative.
We were in the area and stopped by. There is no charge to get in. Snowy owl made the trip worthwhile right away. First exhibit. The animals are "rescues" - and we were happy to see the encasements for the animals - nice with lots of room, Some are empty so be sure and read the signs to know if... 更多
They rescue native Newfoundland animals here and although there is no guarantee on what you will see, there is no charge. The walk through the woods on a well maintained boardwalk was spectacular and peaceful. Spent about an hour there and took lots of photos. Worth the detour.
I had driven by the Nature Park many times and wondered about the facility. Last Sunday my family and I decided to drive from St. John's and explore the facility. The main building is great. A few animal exhibits, a clean building and very friendly staff. The trail is easily accessible by a winding boardwalk that takes you through the... 更多
Great place to visit. The whole purpose of this park is to rehabilitate any birds or animals that are found sick or injured in Newfoundland in as close to natural enclosures as possible. As a result, some of the enclosures will be empty as these animals are doing fine. We were lucky enough to visit shortly after one of the... 更多
Plenty of interesting animals to see, though patience is needed as many of them are quite shy - we did not see them all for this reason. But we did get to see lots, including moose (even though it's not native to Newfoundland!) Informative visitor centre and friendly staff - also, it's free, and not too far off the Trans-Canada... 更多
Went to SNP on a cooler morning. Only about 35 mins drive from St John's, arrived around 11:00. Boardwalk is awesome, great for strollers, but some areas don't have railings, something to keep in mind with little ones. Saw a snowy owl pretty quickly, then multiple caribou. Then a few exhibits we couldn't spot the animals. Saw another horned owl,... 更多
We love the Salmonier Nature Park. We go at least a few times every year. It's about 3 kilometres to get around the park, but it's all boardwalk, so it's wheelchair/stroller accessible. Sometimes you'll go and see tons of animals, and other times you will hardly see anything at all. It depends on the weather, time of day, how noisy... 更多
