There is more to Proctor Park Conservation Area than what first meets the eye. Beyond the manicured lawns and open space, lies 37 hectares (91 acres) of natural wonder.
Venture beyond the forest edge and follow the 2.5 kilometre trail past the crystal-clear Butler Creek, through mystical cedar lowlands, and up through a maple/beech hardwood forest to a view of Presqu'ile Bay. There is something for all seasons -- hiking, nature photography, fishing, picnicking, cross-country skiing and tobogganing.
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 $1 per person. Or e-mail the museum at email@example.com
The Conservation Area is located just north of the Town of Brighton on the west side of Highway 30.
