Mountsberg is the park that has something for everyone, with so many experiences, activities and attractions. Take a short but sweet walk through the Sugar Bush, go for a longer hike on the Pioneer Creek Trail, find a spot to fish along the shore, or cast a line from your kayak or canoe. Don’t forget to drop in on your feathered friends at the Mountsberg Raptor Centre, hang out with the farm animals in the Animal Barn, and if you have any little animals of your own, bring them to climb, clamber and crawl on the natural playground. Reservations required.
