Long Description:

As found at Ruthven Park

Ruthven Park was the former home of the Thompson family who owned the site from the 1840's until 1993. Originally a country estate and working farm, the property now consists of approximately 1,500 acres and overlooks the banks of the Grand River, today a Canadian Heritage River. The mansion is open to the public at scheduled hours and for pre-booked groups and special events. The Park is open during the day.

This National Historic Site offers something for everyone including those with an interest in history and heritage buildings, nature, scenic beauty, wildflowers, hiking or just relaxing and enjoying peaceful surroundings.

There is much more on that website related to activities and such, so please refer to it for more details.

For my contribution, this is a fascinating place to explore and the staff were all very friendly when I visited.

Hope you enjoy the Waymark Visit!
