A beautiful oasis with plenty to offer: Rogers Reservoir is open year-round for exploration and recreation. This 84-hectare conservation area boasts interesting features, old concrete locks and a swing bridge connected to a “ghost” canal system, abandoned in the early 1900’s! Natural features include the East Holland River and surrounding wetlands and forest. Here you’ll find a rich tapestry of flora and fauna, including Great Blue Herons, American coons, woodpeckers, red squirrels, and a diverse array of plants, amphibians and breeding birds - which makes for great bird-watching and nature appreciation! This area is especially beautiful in autumn. The trails are part of the Nokiidaa Trail System that connects the towns of Aurora, East Gwillimbury, and Newmarket. Rogers Reservoir Conservation Area offers great trails to bike and hike on, and a wonderful place to cast in a fishing line, picnic, and spend time with family.
