Includes two provincially significant coastal wetlands which are part of a long-term monitoring study.

The Bowmanville Westside Marshes Conservation Area provides habitat for nesting birds and acts as an important stopover point for waterfowl and shorebirds migrating along the north Shore of Lake Ontario.  A granular 1.5 km looping trail around the upland areas between two Provincially Significant Wetlands, it's just the right length for little ones and is generally stroller and wheelchair friendly.  Two raised mounds give visitors good views into the wetland areas with interpretive signage to enhance your understanding and appreciation of this important natural area.  

Looking for more of a workout? Why not hop onto the Waterfront Trail, which is directly accessible from the Bowmanville/Westside Marshes Conservation Area parking facility.

 

Have your cameras and phones ready for photos and videos as you never know what you might see.
