Shubenacadie Wildlife Park
See Nova Scotia Wildlife Up Close!
The Shubenacadie Wildlife Park is yet another great destination that is closeby. The park will have a special appeal to children who will be excited and enthralled by the variety and number of local and exotic wildlife featured at the facility. You can see and photograph a spectacular Bald Eagle, Black Bear cubs, a family of Cougars, native Red Foxes, moose, deer, Great Horned Owls and numerous species of ducks and geese, not to mention dozens of other mammals and birds. And there are easy-to-read, interpretive panels offering valuable information about each animal you see on your walk through the park.
The connecting trails at the park are wide and well-groomed; and the canopy of evergreen trees offer plenty of shade even during the hotest days of summer. There are a number of picnic areas, so fill the cooler with your favourite beverages and sandwiches and make a real day of it! The kids will love you for it and you will be entertained in the process.
The Shubenacadie Wildlife Park is owned and operated by the government of Nova Scotia and is one of only a few such parks in the province. The park is about a 20 minute drive from our location, just off Highway 102, Exit 11 at Stewiacke, Nova Scotia. There is a family admission fee of $11 ($7.75 during the off-season) to the 40 hectare facility. The park is open every day from May 15th to October 15th each year.
