Welcome to Heartland Forest, a unique natural attraction Where Learning Comes Naturally. Located within the urban boundary of Niagara Falls, Ontario, Heartland Forest is a registered charitable organization with a passion for all ages and abilities. We invite you to come for a visit and enjoy the easy access trails, gardens, carvings, turtle, frog and fish ponds, picnic and interpretative areas. With the opening of the new Nature Centre in 2013 we have been able to expand our programming, offering year-round access and fulfilling Heartland’s desire to be seen as a leading example of accessibility, an active lifestyle and environmental stewardship.
Have a wonderful day!

What Our Visitors Say
"Heartland Forest Nature Experience is a benchmark for parks to model their concepts around. It's also a symbol of true citizenship that its founder has passionately put his heart into environmental consciousness, community engagement and inclusion."
"My children have been attending a bi-‐weekly forest discovery program for the last two years at Heartland Forest. Out of all programs I have my children in, this is one of the ones I most value. It has been a very positive experience for them. They've made good friendships, and all while actively exploring nature with a highly knowledgeable teacher. Thanks so much Heartland Forest for all you do to further this kind of education for our children!"
