Elizabeth Hall Wetlands


The Elizabeth Hall Wetlands, is a preservation area located on the west side of the river nestled between the Oldman River and the Bridge Valley Golf Course. This is a nature interpretation park with information kiosks and observation points located throughout. Guests can take a self guided tour by following the trail system. The trails are a combination of paved and shale and are wheelchair accessible (with some assistance). For those interested in bird watching you may spot a wide variety of birds, such as geese, ducks, raptors, songbirds, and shoreline birds throughout the park.

There are a few rules associated with visiting preservation areas:

  • Bikes and dogs are only permitted on the west path closest to the golf course, as a route straight to Bull Trail Park or highway 3. 
  • Dogs must remain leashed at all times while passing though the park.
  • Picking or removing vegetation is not permitted.
  • Fires and camping are not permitted.

This Nature Reserve is also home to a large variety of other animals like beavers, muskrats, and western painted turtles. There is a dock located on the north end of the wetland which allows for up close viewing of the plants and wildlife making their homes in the pond.

The wetlands are a great spot for walking, bird watching and photography. If you are looking to escape the city but don’t want to travel far, the wetlands are the spot for you. With a beautiful cottonwood forest, an abundance of wildlife, scenic views of the river and high level bridge, the wetlands are one of the most beautiful parks in the city.
