Heartland Forest Nature Experience is located on 38 hectares (93acres) of Provincially Significant Wetland in a relatively remote area of west Niagara Falls. It is well known for numerous natural features including: a Carolinian forest, frog and turtle ponds, a stream, vernal pools and a rich inventory of unique species of birds, trees, and amphibians.
Heartland Forest Nature Experience has many complementary facilities such as: trails, fishing pond (must provide own gear), picnic shelters, informative signs, butterfly garden, observation and rest stations, playground, larger than life animal carvings, mini-putt and one of Canada’s largest tree-houses that offers a panoramic view of the forest. Some of these facilities are available for private events.
The Heartland Forest Nature Experience property was purposefully designed around accessibility. Most of the facilities are accessible by wheelchair and scooter. There is even a custom built swing and a merry-go-round in the play area and a unique fire pit area that will all accommodate wheelchairs safely and with ease!
