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.

Homeschool Program: Fall into Nature
This fall we are offering a 10 week program split into two 5-week themes on Wednesdays or Thursdays for home schooling families (children’s 4 – 11 years) . We have structured activities with nature stewardship, gardening, discovery, games, and art while linking curriculum-based home-schooled with elements of the Forest School model.
