“Nature Close at Hand”

Scout Island Nature Centre
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Scout Island is truly an example of Nature in Harmony. A place where people can safely take the whole family to enjoy a day, or even just a couple of hours. There are foxes to get a glimpse of, ducks and geese nesting all around the lagoon, flowers, bushes and trees to enjoy. Trails to explore, playground for the kids, picnic area. A beautiful NATURAL spot right close to downtown Williams Lake, free for residents and visitors alike to enjoy. All that is asked is that you don't disturb the wildlife, especially during hatching season, and that you clean up your garbage behind you.

This is a lovely place to walk along the lake - surprising actually that not much else from the town of Williams Lake is actually on the lake.

Lots of nature, and nice views. The path towards the end is a bit overgrown, and could use some pruning - other than that, well worth the visit.

Scout Island is the jewel of Williams Lake. Pack a lunch, take your kids and grandkids to the nature house. What an adventure! Walk the many paths through the marsh, along the lake, over the bridge. If you're really quiet you may get to see the beavers paddling about their stick house. Or you may come upon pelians, Canada geese, a wide assortment of water fowl to take pictures or simply watch them as they go about their daily business. Large grass area for kids to run and play. Dogs are welcome (leash please). Beach area for swimming.
