Fort Creek

About This Area

Purchased to address flood control concerns experienced by businesses and residents living downstream. The Fort Creek Dam was constructed between 1968 and 1971 and has a reservoir of approximately 3.24 hectares (8 acres).

In addition to its primary purpose of flood control the Fort Creek Conservation Area also provides the ancillary benefit of green space, recreational opportunities and wildlife habitat. In the summer hikers can enjoy the diversity of scenary and trail difficulty level or have lunch under the pavilion. Offering a delightful diversion in the winter visitors can go snow shoeing, tobogganing or cross country skiing. The conservation area covers approximately 77 hectares (191 acres), Algonquin terrain, Korah Bench, multi-use hub trail
