Address: 4801 DUFFERIN ST Map It

Whether you're a nature or sports enthusiast you'll find something fun to do in G. Ross Lord Park. Over four kilometres of trails, two cricket pitches, a dog off-leash area, three soccer fields, picnic sites and a fire pit can be found within the parks boundaries. It was created in 1972 to help with flood control in the area and named after Dr. G. Ross Lord, former Chairman of the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority. Trails are fully accessible and groomed in the winter for cross-country skiing, weather permitting. There are a number of naturalization projects in the works to help support local wildlife and create a healthier park. This park is a great spot for wildlife and bird watchers alike.
