More than just a beach

Although most people who visit Pinery for the day go straight to the beach, there’s lots more to see and do. Hike one of the 10 walking trails or bike along the Savanna multi-use trail. Pack a lunch and plan a picnic alongside the Old Ausable Channel or go for a paddle in a rental canoe. Explore the displays in the Visitor Centre or browse through the Friends of Pinery Park Nature Store. Don’t forget about Pinery’s many winter activities.

You should refer to the activity schedule for the times, locations and descriptions of all our interpretive events. It is available at the Visitor Centre, and is posted at trailheads, the Visitor Centre, and Comfort Stations throughout the park.
