Proctor-Map.jpgThere is more to Proctor Park Conservation Area than what first meets the eye.  Beyond the manicured lawns and open space, lies 37 hectares of natural wonder.  Venture beyond the forest edge and follow the 2.5 kilometre trail that passes along Butler Creek, through cedar lowlands, and up through a maple/beech hardwood forest and a view of Presqu'ile Bay.  There is something for all seasons --  hiking, nature photography, fishing, picnicking and cross-country skiing.

Proctor House Museum , an elegant and impressive house restored to the 1840 to 1880 period and operated by the Save Our Heritage Organization, is also located within the boundaries of Proctor Park Conservation Area.

Group picnics and other large events can be booked through the Lower Trent Conservation administrative office. Cost is $25 plus $1 per person.
