Price Conservation Area Review
Yes, I know, she’s a pretty small park to be sure. All of 9 hectares no less (and no more). But I gotta admit, it’s a lovely place with great photo ops. While checking to see what was already on the I’Net about it, I noticed a coupla sites showing a hiking designation. Noooo, not really. Not unless you consider walking 20 meters from your car to a picnic table to be “hiking”. I’m not being a jerk about that either ’cause I know someday soon enough, 20 meters will be a hike to me. Anyway, onto cheerier stuff.
Price CA is a fair ways off the beaten path (ie – it’s not on the 401). It’s on the South side of Hwy 7 just North of Actinolite.
But if you’re anywhere near it, it’s really a beautiful spot for a picnic. Other than fishing, a picnic is about all it’s for though. Please don’t misinterpret what I’m telling you here. I guess I’m just saying it’s a lovely place, but not worth driving out of your way for because of it’s size.
There are well maintained picnic facilities, lots of water (both moving and ponding), cardinal flowers in season, and amphibians galore (one of the wife’s many favourite beasties). Should you find yourself in the area, it’s worth a stop in and visit.
