Willow Park Ecology Centre is a year-round nature preserve that provides habitat for native plants and animals. It is approximately 2.1 hectares (or 5 acres) in the floodplain bounded by the West Branch of the Credit River (Silvercreek) and the main Credit River. An ideal site for nature study, education, passive recreation, and relaxation - located in the village of Norval, part of Halton Hills, Ontario, Canada.
The Centre consists of an outdoor park on 5 acres of land in the Credit Valley Watershed and is operated by the WPEC volunteer Board of Directors. The board operates using following their 2010 Strategic Plan and the Management Structure outlined in the Honeycomb Framework (October 2014) -link or insert below . It exists to educate schoolchildren and the general public about ecology and the environment through programs and events, and to provide natural habitat for wildlife in the ravine at the confluence of the Credit River and Silver Creek.
Over 15 years the guardians transformed this former grassy trailer park into a lush and diverse ecosystem along the confluence of the Credit River and Silver Creek. It now includes a board-walked wetland, a rehabilitated riverine shoreline, a snake hibernaculum, as well as vegetated areas planted to attract specific wildlife. Local volunteers have carried through with an ambitious plan to encourage natural regeneration. Today, the 5-acre site has reached early succession.
