Past POIs - Kortright Centre for Conservation [Vaughan, Ontario, Canada]

This will be a bit different from my usual Past Points of Interest. Last week we got our wedding pictures back and I'm very happy with how they turned out. We had our ceremony at Kortright Centre for Conservation located in Vaughan which is the topic of my post today.

Kortright is open to the public and you just pay parking, walk to the visitor centre, ask for a map and go hiking! There are over 16km of self guided trails that are open all year around and it has some very nice looking spots for photos. When you drive in, you feel like you have left the city even though it is located in the heart of Vaughan, near Vaughan Mills and Canada's Wonderland.

Just a short 10 minute walk from the parking lot, you will see various types of locations that provide for excellent photos. There are marshes, wooden paths, wooded paths, and open fields to name a few.

Kortright, which opened in 1979, is named after Dr. Francis H. Kortright, a world famous outdoorsman, author and conservationist. It consists of 325 hectares of woodlands, has 135,000 visitors annually and offers over 50 environmental education programs for schools.
