Explore forests, marshlands, and glacial erratics at Scanlon Creek Conservation Area. A trail system runs throughout the conservation area, providing hikers with a chance to explore most of the 300 hectare property. The remainder is a nature preserve to help protect the flora and fauna that reside in the area.

In the spring, wildflowers and migrating birds are plentiful, and the fall colours are spectacular. During summer months picnicking or fishing in the four hectare reservoir, make Scanlon a great place to spend a few hours or an entire day.

Scanlon Creek's picnic pavilions are the perfect place for family reunions, company picnics, and youth group camp-overs. For reservations please call (905) 895-1281.
