Nurturing Knowledge and Skills for a Greener Future

Welcome to Willow Park Ecology Centre—our award-winning outdoor education centre! We are located in the charming hamlet of Norval in Halton Hills, Ontario, at the confluence of the Credit River and sparkling Silver Creek.

Our 5-acre outdoor ecology centre was transformed from a grassy trailer park into a scenic series of diverse ecosystems. It now provides a home to a growing number of native Ontario habitats, plants, and animals.

We’re open year-round to offer school and community programs and events that engage children, teens, and adult volunteers and learners.
