There are two entrances to Osborne Park. To park closer to the lakeshore, take Eaglewood Drive, which runs adjacent the western edge of the park, and turn right into the north parking lot.
The best birding is along the top of the steep rise that parallels the lakeshore. Look for park benches along the grass-covered rise, which are great for birding or simply enjoying the vista. A scope is helpful for viewing birds here. There is also a paved pathway that starts in the parking lot and connects to the neighborhood east of the park. Also check the small woods south of the north parking lot where some woodland species may be seen.
