Rouge Park

Established in 1995, this large urban wilderness is becoming Canada's first national urban park. The park covers more than 40 square kilometres, stretches from the Oak Ridges Moraine to the shores of Lake Ontario and includes river valleys, creeks, forests, and a variety of natural landscapes within the Rouge River, Petticoat Creek and Duffins Creek watersheds. Extensive trails, historic sites, and scenic viewpoints are among the many things to experience at this one of a kind park.
