Geo: Nothing remarkable geologically-speaking
Bio: Extensive oak savanna and patches of tallgrass prairie species attracting myriad butterflies and other pollinators – both habitats are nationally significant; "there are more species at risk found in Ojibway Park than any other park in Canada"
Water: Pond with associated wildlife including gren herons and many turtles, but nothing too remarkable
Facilities: Parking lot (no charge); Interpretive Centre (free); public toilets (flush)
Access: Wide trails, one paved for wheelchair access; this is a city-owned park so there is no charge
Winter Access: Easily accessible at all times of year
Notes: In summer, the oak savannah is difficult to photograph due to the tall undergrowth, however, tallgrass wildflowers, butterflies and deer abound.
Hazards & Precautions: Ticks and chiggars in tall grasses; poison ivy; water hemlock
