Plan Your Visit To Ruthven Park
Ruthven Park nestled along the banks of the Grand River provides habitat for twenty-four species currently considered at risk and have been recorded on the property. Not all of the species are permanent residents. Migratory birds may use the property for breeding in the summer and feeding or resting in the spring or fall. Other species such as reptiles, amphibians, fish, insects and mammals may spend all or part of their time on Ruthven Park property as they move through their life cycle.
The 1860’s brick estate Gate House situated along Hwy. #54 welcomes visitors to the entry point of the grounds. Once on the property, make sure a stop at the Thompson family cemetery situated on the southern boundary of the picturesque landscape is included in your visit. Hiking trails are situated throughout the property and provide the opportunity to walk through the Carolinian forest, view the river or enjoy the butterfly meadow.
