Morning – Get a nature lesson at Helen Schuler Nature Centre

Visit the Helen Schuler Nature Centre, an admission-free nature preservation with interactive exhibits to discover the area’s local animals, insects, rivers and lakes, and more. Head to the rooftop gardens for a spectacular view of the city’s landscape.
Mid-morning – Explore the city at a leisurely pace
Just beyond the Nature Centre, there are many walking trails to explore. The trails are dedicated to those who want to discover the area at a leisurely pace without bikes zooming by.

Another cool feature of the trails are the cacti found along many of the pathways, an unusual sight in Canada.
