This 68 hectare park is a special place for leisurely walks to the lookout high atop the Lake Erie bluffs or a picnic in the quiet shade of the forest canopy. From the bluffs, you can often see lake freighters, fishing tugs and sometimes Bald Eagles and migrating hawks.
The park is located in the Carolinian region, the only area in Canada where flora and fauna more common to the central United States, grow and thrive. A sense of serenity and dignity is felt in the centuries old hardwood forest with its array of colourful wildflowers and rich history. Woodland trails blooms with unusual flowers in the spring - Yellow Mandarin, Stiff Gentian, Beech Fern.
The park is in the heart of what was the Talbot Settlement. A drive along the lake is like “a trip back in time”. Be sure to stop at the nearby Backus Page museum which celebrates the history of this area.
There are picnic tables, but otherwise minimal services are available at the park. Vault toilets are located at the Backus Page Museum and by the scenic lookout and picnic grounds.
