Walk-ins Welcome at Island Lake: Park Responsibly

Wednesday, May 15, 2019 by Credit Valley Conservation

Island Lake Conservation Area is now operating under summer hours. Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) wants to remind park visitors to be good neighbours and park responsibly when accessing the park through active transportation.

While designated trail parking is available at the Home Hardware parking lot, located at 60 4th Avenue in Orangeville, we remind members of the public to park in the 12 identified trail parking spaces only.

CVC and Home Hardware have partnered to offer these spaces for the public as part of CVC’s active transportation program. This program allows members of the public arriving on foot, bike or other active means to access the park at no charge.

CVC and the Home Hardware would like to remind the public that anyone parking in undesignated parking spaces (the regular lot) at Home Hardware will be towed at their own expense.

Visitors can receive unlimited access to the main parking lot at Island Lake Conservation Area during hours of operation through CVC’s membership program.  For more information about memberships, visit
