South Innisfil Arboretum

Come, walk around, take some time to explore and enjoy the tranquillity the Arboretum offers. Birds have already discovered this natural habitat; bird lovers should follow. Bring along a picnic and enjoy your meal surrounded by nature. This is a fabulous spot to experience the trees, relax on a park bench and smell the flowers. There are four seasons to enjoy here – don’t let the snow stop you, use snowshoes!

On October 5, 2009 the First Stroud Beavers visited the South Innisfil Arboretum. Pictured are the Beavers in front of the 34 foot totem pole.Enjoy001
