Minnekhada Regional Park is separated into two sections. One section of the park is a developed area with a historic lodge and floral gardens. The 1934 lodge was built by Lieutenant Governor Eric Hamber as a country retreat. Today it hosts events, weddings and special occasions.
The other section of the Minnekhada Regional Park is a recreation destination and a wildlife sanctuary built around the Pitt - Addington Marsh. The natural marsh and wetland area is built around raised dykes, thick forests and rocky outcroppings. There are many sightings of birds, beaver and the occasional bear.
Both hiking and birdwatching are popular in the regional park. The trails begin best from the main parking lot of the Pitt - Addington Marsh. The network of trails lead to rocky lookouts, information signs, sightseeing benches, day use picnic areas, viewing platforms, lookout towers and back to the lodge.
Throughout the natural marsh regions of the park are over 10 kilometres of hiking trails. The recreation trails include the Lodge Trail, Cliff Trail, Meadow Trail, Log Walk Trail and the Quarry Trail. The trails range from level, easy-going to challenging with steep slopes, exposed tree roots and rocks.
The two lookouts in the Minnekhada Regional Park include the Addington Lookout and the High Knoll Lookout. Accessing the High Knoll Lookout requires a steep climb and it is considered challenging. However the views from the lookout overlooking the Marsh and Pitt River are memorable.
From the Minnekhada Regional Park one can hook into other trail networks in the region on foot or on bike. The network of dykes in the regional park connect to the trails following the banks of the Deboville Slough or the banks of the Pitt River.
