The Best Canadian Reptile Experience!

Scales Nature Park focuses on the conservation of reptiles, amphibians, and fish through education, research, and conservation activities.

Found a rare, nesting, injured, or dead reptile in central Ontario? Call or text our Reptile Hotline at 705-955-4284! We may send a team out to gather data and/or provide assistance.


Update - Spring 2022: Scales Nature Park is moving forward with plans to reopen to the public! Guided tours by appointment only will be available beginning March Break, click here for more information. Please note that all outdoor facilities and our classroom remain closed during this phase of our reopening plan.

 We look forward to connecting with you through our live or virtual outreach programming, Herpetology Internship Program, and online gift shop!


We look forward to seeing everyone in person again!
