Located in the heart of the city, the 97 hectare (240 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!
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.
