Rock Point Provincial Park


Situated atop a 350-million-year-old fossilized coral reef, Rock Point Provincial Park protects important geological, environmental, and cultural features. It is also a beautiful place to spend a day or weekend exploring the mixed woodlands of the Carolinian Forest Zone. The Wood Lot Trail will take you through special places in the park, including wetland communities, a Carolinian forest, a rare Oak Savanna, and abandoned farmers’ fields that are beginning to reforest themselves. Because of the mixed forests, wetlands, and open grasslands, this park is an important habitat for a variety of bird species, making this park a birder’s paradise! Over 260 bird species have been recorded in the park, including Barn Swallows, Red-tailed Hawks, and Indigo Bunting. A must-see feature is, of course, the renowned fossil formations dating back to the Devonian period. They are detailed and easy to find, embedded in the limestone and bedrock.
