Parks Day at Rouge National Urban Park
Saturday, July 20 was Parks Day at the Rouge National Urban Park!
As  residents of Markham-Stouffville we are very fortunate to live so near to one of the best family day trips in Ontario: the Rouge National Urban Park.

I was very proud to be a part of the creation of the Rouge National Urban Park in 2015. A rich assembly of natural, cultural, and agricultural landscapes, the Rouge National Urban Park is home to:
  • amazing biodiversity
  • some of the last remaining working farms in the Greater Toronto Area 
  • Carolinian ecosystems
  • one of the region’s largest marshes
  • unspoiled beaches
  • amazing hiking opportunities
  • human history dating back over 10,000 years, including some of Canada's oldest known Indigenous sites
All of this and an array of fun family activities are available to you and your family on one of the best day trips you’ll have all summer.
This year, Parks Day events take place at the Zoo Road Welcome Area.
Located adjacent to the Toronto Zoo, off Zoo Road, this area of the park is known for its rare forests, restored wetlands, and stunning fall colours. Popular activities include hiking, bird-watching and fall photography. Winter activities include snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Click here to see a map of the welcome area.

You can get to the Zoo Road Welcome Area by car OR public transit.
You can plan your trip to Rouge National Urban Park at Triplinx.ca
