For most of us, summer is about spending time outdoors with family and friends. It’s a welcome break from our hectic schedules. Mother Nature can help us feel connected, healthy and happy.

On June 9th Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) and Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) are celebrating Conservation Parks Day. Together, we’re opening our gates and encourage visitors to explore the great outdoors.

Park visitors will receive FREE general admission all day at participating CVC and TRCA parks, including:

  • Albion Hills, Caledon
  • Boyd, Vaughan
  • Bruce’s Mill, Stouffville
  • Glen Haffy, Caledon
  • Heart Lake, Brampton
  • Island Lake, Orangeville
  • Ken Whillans, Caledon
  • Petticoat Creek, Pickering
  • Terra Cotta, Halton Hills

Special activities are planned at a few CVC parks, including Island Lake and Terra Cotta Conservation Areas.

Island Lake Conservation Area will offer free yoga sessions, sponsored by community partners GoYoga and Creek Side Clothing and Lole. Visitors to Terra Cotta Conservation Area can enjoy guided hikes by the Bruce Trail Club, a barbecue by the Georgetown Lion’s Club, a reptile show by Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo and nature sessions by Humans in Nature. For a schedule of events, visit our events calendar.

Each of our park locations has something different to offer. Spend the day, visit more than one park and enjoy the very best of what Mother Nature has to offer. Why rush? Pick your park and start your adventure!
