By Essex Region Conservation Authority
Tremblay Beach Conservation Area is situated on the shore of beautiful Lake St. Clair with a sandy beach, and is bordered on the east side by Little Creek. Trails can be enjoyed along the shoreline as well as alongside the Creek. The lake here is shallow and the bottom is sandy, ideal for paddling, but not suitable for swimming due to aquatic vegetation.
A viewing tower will give you a bird's eye perspective of the abundant and interesting wildlife in the marsh.
Conservation Area Facts
Tremblay Beach Conservation Area is one of only two marshes remaining on Essex County's Lake St. Clair Shoreline (along with Ruscom Shores Conservation Area). The sandy beach, 1/2 km shoreline and extensive marsh make it ideal for spring birding, or just a quiet walk by the water.
The marsh is has become congested with phragmites and Essex Region Conservation Authority is currently conducting research into environmentally friendly ways to reduce its spread and improve the health of this important ecosystem.
Open Dawn until Dusk. Accessible all year. Free of charge.
Take County Road 35 (in the northeast corner of the county) north through Stoney Point. Turn east at the shoreline road and follow it to Tremblay Beach.
