Dan Patterson Conservation Area
By Kettle Creek Conservation Authority

Nestled in the Kettle Creek valleylands, Dan Patterson Conservation Area is a popular picnic spot that offers an abundance of shade trees, a picnic pavilion and a playground.
For those who enjoy history, the site is home to a restored cabin. The cabin was originally the home of Alexander Patterson, who emigrated from Scotland in 1834. A replica water tower and windmill have also been restored on this site.

Dan Patterson hosts the Elgin Historical Show every August. Highlights include demonstrations of steam-powered machinery, a thresherman's breakfast and antique tractor displays.
