Mud Bay Park opened in the fall of 2002. The park offers shoreline views and bird watching during the migratory season.
Like Blackie Spit Park, which is located across the bay, the tidal marshes and eelgrass beds along the shoreline are a stop for migrating and wintering waterfowl and shorebirds. Fall migrants start arriving in late August and September. Spring migrants start leaving in mid-March and are generally gone by the end of May.
There are seasonal closures of the shoreline trails to dogs, bikes and horses from fall to early spring each year to accommodate migratory birds.
The nature trail walk around Mud Bay Park is around 3 kilometres long. Allow 1.5 hours for this walk.
