Rouge National Urban Park
On October 21, 2017, the province handed over 1,600 acres of parks land to Parks Canada as part of the plan to complete the nation's largest urban park. The Rouge National Urban Park (RNUP) will span nearly 80 square kilometers, making it 50 times larger than Toronto's High Park.
RNUP is comprised of a rich assembly of natural, cultural and agricultural landscapes with many remarkable features, including: amazing biodiversity with over 1,700 species of plants and animals; some of the last remaining working farms in the Greater Toronto Area; Carolinian forests; Toronto’s only campground; one of the region’s largest marshes; unspoiled beaches; amazing hiking opportunities; and human history dating back over 10,000 years, including some of Canada's oldest known Indigenous sites and villages.
