Since 2003, Heartland Forest has dedicated itself to inspiring all people to respect, protect and enjoy the world of nature. Located on over 200 acres within the urban boundary of Niagara Falls, Heartland Forest is open to the public year-round, FREE OF CHARGE. Our greatest asset is our all-season, accessible outdoor space including fish, frog and turtle ponds with four kilometers of easy access trails and boardwalks twisting through the natural wonders of the Niagara Peninsula. Facilities include picnic pavilions, playgrounds, mini-putt, one of the largest tree-houses in Canada, and our 14,000 square foot Nature Centre – all accessible. Parents can take their children for a walk through the woods, while people who use mobility devices can park up close and lose themselves in nature without obstacles. We offer a range of programs catering to all from children to seniors, from woot- and wetland restoration to adventure camps to brain rehabilitation and much more. If you love the outdoors, you’ll fall in love with Heartland Forest.
Toolbox Project Niagara
Toolbox Project Niagara was founded in 2017. The purpose is to provide homeless men in Niagara with a care package during the Christmas season. Bins are dropped off at various community partners. Once bins are full with needed items they are then assembled into a care package and delivered.
