Overview

Located near the picturesque village of Wakefield, 30 minutes from Ottawa-Gatineau, you will discover beaver habitat while browsing a water maze (aboard a pedal boat or canoe) spread out over 6 km. We also have walking adventures (maze and walk in the wood).

The children begged for us to return to this wonderful spot. We were worried it would not be as entertaining as the first original visit. We were wrong, it surpassed it! We saw tiny fish, turtles and enjoyed our adventure that lasted almost 2 hours....More

One of the best attractions I've ever been to and very reasonably priced. We did the paddle boat excision, using the 'observer' adventure. Perfect for a 6 and 8 year old. They had a blast looking for the animal clues and learned something along the...More

Thank you for your visit and comment. Effectively because of natural phenomena (dragonflies, frogs and bats), there are very few insects that sting.

Who would think that in the middle of this location - a large water maze with paddle boats and a well-thought-out itinerary to follow would be available for a summer experience. Have fun.

Thanks for your comment! Effectively people are surprised that there is no bugs in the marsh, thanks to dragonflyes, frogs and bats. We have schools coming for Biology classes, they learn by searching in the book for different species they find in our environment. Wakefield...More
