Purple Woods Conservation Area


While it is beautiful year-round, late winter is the best time to visit Purple Woods Conservation Area. This park is home to a vast 42 acre sugar bush with a quaint sugar shack in the heart of the forest. Of course, Purple Woods is home to an annual maple syrup festival, where visitors can taste the delightful product of the forest’s winter harvest. The park also has several trails of varying terrain — whether you are looking for a leisurely stroll or a rigorous hike, there is a perfect trail for you. Nature enthusiasts flock to the park to listen to the many forest birds that nest in the region. Just five minutes north of Oshawa, it is the perfect spot to experience a sweet escape from the long, dreary winter!
