Rouge National Urban Park

Markham is so fortunate to be part of the amazing Rouge River watershed, home to Canada’s first national park in an urban area. With a rich assembly of natural, cultural and agricultural landscapes, Rouge National Urban Park is "home to amazing biodiversity, some of the last remaining working farms in the Greater Toronto Area, Carolinian ecosystems, 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."
