Located in the heart of the city, the 101 hectare (250 acre) Laurier Woods encompasses a provincially significant wetland, rocky outcrops and upland forest; and is a sanctuary to a broad range of wetland and woodland creatures, including migrating birds.
A 10+ kilometre trail network spans the Woods offering excellent opportunities for hiking and wildlife viewing. There is much to appreciate and enjoy in Laurier Woods - some of which is featured at the interpretive stops along the trail. Stop at the dipping platform on the lower pond to catch a glimpse of the wetland birds and aquatic life. Have a seat at the Haist Lookout for a birds' eye view.
Enjoy your hike!
We are pleased to announce our guided walks
are back for 2022
Visitors are asked to park in the main entrance parking lot located at the end of Brule Street. The secondary entrance at the end of Laurier Avenue has very limited parking. Thank you for your cooperation.
Please, if you bring it in, take it out. Thank you.
The birds, plants, and Directors of the FLW thank all that use the Woods responsibly.
It is time to replace the 2 deteriorating boardwalks that skirt the main pond and provide key access to the Woods. The reconstruction will include new footings, decking, a safety border along the edges & increased width allowing for improved safety and capacity with the increasing number of visitors to the Woods.
The Friends of Laurier Woods hope you will consider helping them to raise the necessary funds to complete this important project.
