Fantastic for the family.

Plenty to do. Create totem poles abound. Structures to explore. Wooden house and bridges. Educational if you stop to read the signs or sign up for a class or event. Or just... read more

Plenty to do. Create totem poles abound. Structures to explore. Wooden house and bridges. Educational if you stop to read the signs or sign up for a class or event. Or just fun to walk through. Go during warmer weather unless you are a winter bunny.

The first time I went to Heartland Forest with my husband I had to take my scooter. The trails were well groomed and I could use scooter without any difficulty. These trails are perfect for people in wheelchairs as well. There are benches throughout as well. The statues and learning centers make it an interesting outing. The second time, I... More

I had never heard of Heartland Forest. We found the trail that led into the forest. On our trek there were a lot of wooden statues, attractive to children like a frog and other imaginations. There is a pavilion where kids can learn all about nature. There are numerous topics, like Aliens of Niagara (Invasive plants and insects), the web... More

We walked the trail and saw sunning turtles and spotted many different kinds of frogs. The path is well groomed so good for families with little ones who aren't as steady on their feet. It started to rain so we didn't try the mini putt and playground. I like the idea of a free park. It's kind of the owners... More

Bathrooms are horribly unsanitary. Schools should not be taking students on field trips here. Too little to do for a whole day. I attended the field trip with their class and the activities were limited.

To be back with nature and all the activities this place does. The Wood Carvers Show a week ago was very well done and the kids group, wonderful. Check this out, a family outing.

This is a lovely place to bring a family. It is very family oriented. If you are looking for a long hike, this is not it. The longest trail is 2km which is great when bringing kids. Along the trail are totem poles which are brightly coloured and fun to look at. After a nice hike there is a great... More
