When the temperature drops and trees shed their leaves, many outdoor attractions in Cape Breton close for the season. One exception is Two Rivers Wildlife Park in Huntington.
From November 1 to May 14, the Park is open daily (except Christmas Day) from 10am-5pm. The Park is home to over 50 species of animals and birds, and provides an opportunity to see them in a winter setting.
On December weekends, the park hosts Winter Light Up -- a 1 km trail with thousands of lights, complemented with the sounds of Christmas music filling the forest. A horse-drawn sleigh takes visitors to and from the trail. Steaming hot chocolate awaits their urn.
If Mother Nature provides sufficient snowfall, visitors can try snowshoeing or cross-country skiing on groomed trails, skating on ice-covered ponds, tobogganing, and even ice fishing.
Winter Frolic takes place in late January and February, where visitors can participate in coasting, candlelit tours, sleigh rides, and enjoy steaming hot chocolate.
On February 2nd, 2018, the park celebrates Groundhog Day with activities focused on the furry animals prediction for the spring.
Groups can book sleigh rides and hot chocolate for special events and visits.
During March Break, special events take place with free wagon rides.
