Hyla Park

IMG_7001-Edit.jpg

This small but vivacious park lies within the city of Fredericton, New Brunswick. The park was nominated as the first Amphibian Park in Canada by National Geographic and is home to many species of frogs, not just the grey tree frog, Hyla versicolor, where the park gets its name.

It only takes one visit to see how truly bio-diverse this 8-hectare park is, being home to a wide range of plant and animal species. To me, this park is a symbol of how powerful nature can be, seeing as this park was once a gravel extraction site, and before that, a race track. When viewing the park today, it is hard for one to believe its transformation over the years.
