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. Please note that horseback riding is not permitted at Mountsberg.
Keep Mountsberg Animals Healthy
To help keep our horses and other barn animals safe, we kindly ask that you do not feed them anything while visiting the park. Our animal care attendants provide a specific, locally sourced diet for them. Thank you in helping us provide a safe space for our animals to live happy, healthy lives!
