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.
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.
