Port Hope Conservation Area, which is 89.94 acres (36.4 ha) in size, is tucked beside the Ganaraska River. This land was acquired on February 3, 1964. The woodland trails along the Ganaraska River are rich in plant life and great for a picturesque stroll or nature photography. Not only a great place to relax and enjoy a picnic by the water, but also a popular spot for fishing. The Ganaraska Fishway (fish sanctuary) is on the south side of Highway 401.
