The Best Canadian Reptile Experience

Scales Nature Park is an education and conservation facility focused on Canadian reptiles, amphibians, and fish. Our nature centre features the largest live collection of Canadian reptiles and amphibians, providing unparalleled opportunities for learning about these creatures.

Visitors have a chance to touch or hold some of them, and most people try it out! We provide on-site and outreach programming for groups such as schools, camps, and birthday parties, as well as advanced workshops on specialized topics.

While most people come for the animals in the centre (it’s a great rainy day activity!), the park itself features 3.5 km of nature trails through a variety of habitats such as forest and wetland.
