Take a step back in time to experience the majesty of this estate and mansion, circa 1930. The park is divided into two very distinct areas: the estate lands, which are formal and landscaped, and the valley walls and flood plain of Shore Acres Creek, which are in a natural state. The park features two suspended iron bridges, floral gardens, nature trails and the waterfront. This 14-acre heritage park is a unique blend of open spaces, wetlands, waterfront nature trails and pathways, which provide access to the lakeshore and panoramic views of Lake Ontario. The 10-acre Discovery Trail features a flood plain that is one of the only natural areas of its kind remaining along the Halton shoreline of Lake Ontario. The wildlife existence within this park is significant, emphasizing the continued commitment to preserve the natural habitat and landscape of this park site.
