The Rouge National Urban Park Management Plan was tabled on January 16, 2019, marking another significant milestone in the creation of Canada’s first national urban park.

Since 2011, Parks Canada has engaged more than 20,000 Canadians and has worked closely with Indigenous Peoples, all levels of government, community groups, conservationists, park farmers, residents, volunteers, and many other groups to establish Rouge National Urban Park and complete the first management plan.

The plan provides a strategic framework to guide park decision-making and for launching initiatives that integrate the delivery of Parks Canada’s mandate for protection, education and visitor experience.
