Things to do
Rouge National Urban Park’s close proximity to Canada's largest city and metropolitan area – and 20 percent of Canada's population – provides Parks Canada with an excellent opportunity to engage current and future generations of stewards to connect with and protect the Rouge for the benefit, education and enjoyment of Canadians now and for countless future generations.
Bring your sense of adventure along with your hiking shoes to Rouge National Urban Park. Any time of the year there are natural, cultural and agricultural areas to explore. Meet with a guide to learn something new, bring a canoe to drift through the marsh. Capture photos of the sun glowing in the golden fall leaves. Then come back in the winter to listen to your boots crunch on the freshly fallen snow. It’s a “people’s park” waiting for you to enjoy.
