Over 820 acres of lakes, forests, wetlands, and meadows await you at Island Lake Conservation Area. Located among Dufferin County’s rolling hills is this fabulous year-round park, filled with recreational activities for everyone to enjoy. The park is part of a 6km-long chain of wetland habitats that feed into nearby river systems, so it is not surprising that water dominates this conservation area. Hike or cycle along the 8.2 km lakeside trails that will bring you past creeks, bogs, marshes, and (of course) Island Lake! A lovely boardwalk will also bring you closer to the region’s rich and healthy wildlife. Keep your eyes peeled for deer, porcupines, red foxes, flying squirrels, and a wide variety of bird species. The park even offers canoe, kayak, and paddleboard rentals, so you don’t have to worry about bringing your own equipment!

In the morning before I start my day and get to work I’m usually in the water south Mississauga at a small little beach called Water’s Edge where sometimes it’s just 10 minutes, sometimes it’s 30 minutes but it’s just my time, my quiet time to clear my mind, be active because I know it’s going to be a crazy day.
