Wildlife

The park is home to all kinds of wildlife including mule and white-tailed deer, squirrels and forest birds.

It is important to keep in mind when visiting Willmore Park that you are in bear country. When using the trail system make plenty of noise, especially when walking near streams or coming around corners. Remember to always be aware of your surroundings.

Seasonal Fun

Summer:

On hot summer days the sandy beaches of the McLeod River are a very popular spot to head for a swim or soak up the sun.

Winter:

In winter, the park is a popular destination for families and friends as it offers a spectacular tobogganing hill for sledding and all our winter fun. On a good snow year the trails also offer opportunities to snowshoe and cross-country ski.
