Shakespeare, Ontario is well known for its antique stores, quilt and home decor shops, pie and bakeshop, and stop off spot for tourists on their way to Stratford to see a play at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival.
Just a mile or so north of the only stoplight in Shakespeare you will find the Shakespeare Conservation Area. This is one of my new favourite spots to take Lola for a walk. You can walk all around the pond which is bordered by farmer's fields. The large trees are home to many varieties of birds.
Shakespeare Conservation Area is a day use only park so it's a great spot to enjoy a picnic or just kickback and watch the geese and ducks. On my visit this evening I spotted two blue herons flying over the pond.
If you are looking for a quiet spot in the country to enjoy a little peace and quiet, put Shakespeare Conservation Area in Perth County on your bucket list.
