I visit this conservation area quite often. It is a lovely place to see squirrels, chipmunks, ducks, swans, wild turkeys and deer. There are donated benches that my dad can have a little rest on while I walk with my mom.

My husband and I took a walk through Lynde shores Conservation area and were really surprised at how clean the park was, and park benches along the trails. You can see Beautiful Lake Ontario and also see the deer running through it. Just lovely.

A nice place to come and visit to appreciate nature. You do have to pay for seed and parking. There are no garbage cans. Gorgeous place to visit to get away from the hustle and bustle of the suburbs.
