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!

I take someone new with me every year and I pretend to be a tourist guide showing around and teaching them all I know.

In this process I have learned more and loved more in this lake, more than anywhere else.
