Earl Rowe Provincial Park is a popular recreational park, located on the doorstep of Metro Toronto. If you are in need of a break from the bustling city, it is an ideal place for a relaxing day or weekend trip. Popular recreational activities include fishing and boating on the man-made reservoir, and swimming in a recently constructed swimming pool. The fish ladder is a great place to view the incredible salmon spawning in the fall, and trout in the spring. While visiting the park, take to the opportunity to visit the historical school, Meadowbrook, which was built around 1899. It is located in the southwest corner of the park, and is the only structure from its time that is still standing. This school is from the time when a tiny community called Meadowbrook existed. In addition to this building, a blacksmith's shop, workers' houses, and a few homesteads formed part of this community. The park also contains evidence of two pre-Archaic campsites dating back 5,000 to 7,000 years ago! You can also enjoy winter activities in this park. Please contact the park for more details.
