Alfred Hole Goose Sanctuary and Visitor Centre

When four orphaned goslings made their way into Alf Hole's life in 1939, the sanctuary's roots were established. Today, Alf's legacy is enjoyed by many park visitors.

Inside the Visitor Centre, displays present the history of the sanctuary, the biology of Canada geese and plenty of opportunities to view the geese up-close. Park Interpreters offer scheduled programs, activities and park information from spring to fall.

Best times to visit are early June when goslings are present with their parents, and late August to Thanksgiving when hundreds of geese are staging for fall migration.

Located on PTH 44, just east of Rennie.  Admission is always free!
