The centre of attraction at this Conservation Area is the "old swimming hole", a 0.8 hectare (two acre) former limestone quarry encircled by sheer cliffs up to 12 metres (40 feet) high. Elora Quarry did not become a conservation area until 1976, but it was a popular swimming area long before that. This 79 acre (32 hectare) day-use conservation area is tree covered.
