Connect with Nature at Ruthven Park

Please Note:

As Haldimand County has entered Stage 3, Ruthven Park has decided to remain closed at this time. Staff is working hard to make improvements to our site during these uncertain times to make your next visit to Ruthven Park even better.

With nearly 1,500 acres of land, Ruthven Park is composed of a diversity of ecosystems that provide essential habitat for an amazing variety of wildlife.

Carolinian forest, wetlands, riparian and aquatic habitat along the Grand River, meadows, and active agricultural land are all part of this diverse landscape.

Since 1994, Ruthven Park has been passionately studying and conserving these lands through bird banding, inventories, studies of species at risk, and habitat restoration projects.
