Elgin Heritage Park Nature Trails

Elgin Heritage Park is a unique treasure on the banks of the Nicomekl River. The land was pre-empted by John Hardy in the 1880s and then settled by John Stewart who built the fine Victorian farmhouse in 1894. For over five decades the Stewart family operated a thriving hay farm and helped to build the local school, church, community hall and river dykes of the historic community of Elgin.


The forested area between the two entrances to the park has many large trees often used by eagles and hawks to survey the surrounding area for prey. The habitat functions of the marsh significantly contribute to the ecological value of the lower Nicomekl River. The area supports fish and other wildlife and is used for nesting by small perching birds and waterfowl.
