Scanlon Creek Conservation Area is a hikers’ haven, a picnicking paradise, a birder’s delight and a photographer’s dream. Explore forests, marshlands, and glacial erratics, enjoy spring wildflowers, or the vibrant fall leaves and see plenty of birds and other wildlife as you hike the expansive trail system covering most of the 300 hectare park. Serving both environmental and recreational needs, the park is a nature preserve for flora and fauna and home to a Bark Park for our canine friends. During the summer, picnicking is fun and easy under our covered pavilions - perfect for family reunions, company events and camp-outs. Don't forget to visit the Discovery Play Garden - a popular playground for young and the young-at-heart. Scanlon Creek is a place to spend a few hours or an entire day!
