Featuring over 320 hectares of marshland, 16 creeks and 25 km of shoreline, Cootes Paradise is a unique treasure that surrounds McMaster University that provides space for students to engage in a healthy active lifestyle, enhances mental wellbeing and is a great place to escape to when feeling stressed or overworked.
