Located north of the Regional Psychiatric Centre on Central Avenue, the Crocus Prairie, informally named for the beautiful native crocuses found there, is a very ecologically sensitive site. The parking lot off Central Avenue marks a trail head that meanders south along the top of the riverbank towards Sutherland Beach. Please respect the land and refrain from picking wildflowers.
North of Crocus Prairie is Petturson’s Ravine. Restored after many years of pollution and abuse, this unique bog is now an environmental success story. NOTE: Petturson’s Ravine is on private land and is not open to the public.
