Additional facilities can be rented including a large picnic shelter and a group camping area for Scouts and Guides. Ten kilometres of nature trails (some wheelchair accessible) meander through the forested areas and ravine systems, with boardwalks, staircases and bridges showcasing beautiful views along the way. Educational programming and special public events are popular year round attractions.
