About This Area
The Bowmanville Westside Marshes Conservation Area provides habitat for nesting birds and acts as an important stopover point for waterfowl and shorebirds migrating along the north Shore of Lake Ontario. A granular, 1.5 km, looping trail around the upland areas between two Provincially Significant Wetlands, is generally stroller and wheelchair friendly. Two raised mounds give visitors good views into the wetland areas with interpretive signage to enhance visitors’ understanding and appreciation of this important natural area. The Waterfront Trail is directly accessible from the Bowmanville Westside Marshes Conservation Area parking facility.
