Nature Sanctuary

Two geese and four gooselings swimming in a pond.

The Discovery Nature Sanctuary is a hidden oasis in an urban landscape.

Located in the north east part of Winkler just off Eastview Drive, this 32 acre space is home to waterfowl, songbirds, frogs and more.

It is a safe haven for animals and plants and a relaxing place of natural beauty for people.
