Sightseeing

Wonderful park in the middle of nowhere. It's a 15 minute drive from almost everything, but we were looking for a new activity for our kids, and this park was perfect. Great playground equipment and well maintained. It also has an open-sided shelter with picnic tables - perfect for lunch.

Cool bridge, beautiful views on both directions. You can make this a quick stop by just checking out the bridge or longer if you add in a hike and picnic on the attached trails and picnic area in Ferris Conservation area. In the park there's a more rugged trail that follows the fenceline and has more scenic views or an easier trail that runs up higher but doesn't have the same views. Also a variety of trees are labeled in the area if you enjoy that type of thing.   Cool bridge, beautiful views on both directions.

What an awesome experience! Took my boyfriend here (2 hour drive) without telling him where we were going. His Jeep is in the style of Jurassic Park from the 93’ classic film. He was excited when we pulled up. Grabbed lots of pics, and the staff was super friendly. They asked if they could grab pics for their social media page and of course we let them. A lot of the visitors also asked/or just simply took pics of our Jeep. Super great to actually drive the Jeep through a dino exhibit. We’ll 100% be returning. Thanks for the memories!!   What an awesome experience! Took my boyfriend here (2 hour drive) without telling him where we were going.

The person who registered us was very nice. We were tourist, so we asked for more information and the lady at the reception gave us detailed information to visit. Worth learning new things. Was also able to see an actual air force flying in the sky. Fees are 8$ per person, no reservation required. Takes about 1 hour to complete the visit.   The person who registered us was very nice.

I love dimensions of Canadian history that are communicated in captivating style. This place exudes fascinating information, water craft fundamental to our country's development, interactive learning stations, opportunities for hands-on creative learning experiences for all ages, and a shop full of beautiful items for sale. I just bought a gift for a family member here. A perfect place to enjoy with family and friends!   I love dimensions of Canadian history that are communicated in captivating style.

Went golfing with my brother , this was both our first games of the year . It was a beautiful day . Lovely course , been going here for years . Good food and friendly service . Their beer cart was reasonably priced with a friendly driver . You paid at a window on the club house . They washed our cart after use 👍   Went golfing with my brother , this was both our first games of the year . It was a beautiful day . Lovely course , been going here for years .

Great little course! More of a local home flavour to it which I like. Greens and fairways are in good shape. Not bad roughs. The people that work there are all friendly! Challenging layout too!

My Golf partner and myself had the best time at this course and the staff were wonderful. Lush beautiful greens. Par 5’s were generous and putting was fun! Loved the back 9. Thanks for the great visit. We will be back!

Food Scene

Just might be the best fish & chips I have ever eaten! First off the staff are amazing, Fries are done right, fresh cut, and fried twice! (cooled between cooks, makes them extra crispy without cooking them too death) As for the fish, We had the Halibut it was thick cut with a nice golden crispy batter and huge. Tarter and coleslaw was amazing too. we were a party of 6 and everyone left more then satisfied!   Just might be the best fish & chips I have ever eaten!

Amazing place and super friendly staff! We are moving to the area so we wanted to try their pizza. We ordered the Extra large Deluxe. The ingredients were super fresh and super loaded of meat and cheese! A bit disappointed that they were out of butter tart, but I don't blame them, their sweets seem to fly quick. I will revisit again for sure.   Amazing place and super friendly staff! We are moving to the area so we wanted to try their pizza. We ordered the Extra large Deluxe.

5 stars for this small town Chinese restaurant. Sometimes Chinese restaurants in small towns can be questionable, but this place was on point. I had the Szechuan beef, and the BBQ pork with vegetables. Great taste and lots of flavour. Fresh ingredients. Big portions. Great value. The owner lady was very friendly as well. If you like a little heat, go for the Szechuan. Great Chinese food even in a small town. Gotta love it!   5 stars for this small town Chinese restaurant.
