Mountsberg Attractions and Activities

No matter your age – stroller to seniors, everyone loves Mountsberg. The grounds are beautifully maintained and offer a variety of things to do. You can spend 3+ hours here, so pack a picnic and snacks.

Explore the Discovery Centre and learn about native animals and trees and how they coexist.

Wander the trails throughout the area and keep your eyes peeled for rabbits, horses, so many birds and reptiles.

Make time – lots of time – for the Mountsberg Raptor Centre because this is my favourite part. Beautiful birds like the Barn Owl, hawks and a bald eagle are all waiting to meet you. Stay for a presentation or book a tour. Both are well worth it.

Grab your fishing pole and head to the Mountsberg reservoir. You may also see some frogs, ducks and turtles. They’re allowed to swim, but no swimming for the humans, please!

Visit the animals at the Barn. You may see sheep, goats, rabbits and chickens. During the warm months, you’ll see some gorgeous horses in their yard. They’re big beauties!

Special Events at Mountsberg Conservation Area

In October, everyone is invited to Mountsberg Spooktacular, a family-friendly Halloween event. Spooktacular includes a spooky walk, scavenger hunt, a haunted barn and more. But don’t worry, nothing too scary, so kids of all ages will love it. Click here to read all about Mountsberg Spooktacular.

Christmas Town Mountsberg is an enchanted winter exploring event where visitors walk through the grounds which are brilliantly lit and (hopefully) dusted with snow. Enjoy bonfires, hot drinks and a beautiful glow at Mountsberg Christmas Town.

Late winter is a sweet time of year when you visit Maple Town at Mountsberg Conservation Area. Learn how maple syrup is made now, and how it was made long ago. Take a horse-drawn wagon ride through the Mountsberg sugar bush and sample some hot syrup poured over fresh, clean snow. Mountsberg Maple Town is a special event and may require addition payment and booking in advance. Read all about local Maple Syrup Festivals here.
