The Rouge National Urban Park is the first national urban park in Canada. Once complete, this massive park will span an incredible 79 square kilometres (that’s almost 20,000 acres — 23 times the size of Central Park in New York City!). The region is home to an incredible array of biodiversity and cultural history. The park is home to some of the oldest known indigenous sites in the country, dating back 10,000 years. Here you will find large marshlands, vast forests, pristine beaches, and extensive hiking trails. It is also home to Toronto’s only campsite! The Rouge’s incredible wildlife, coupled with its fascinating history, make it a must-see in the Great Lakes region.
