Part historic site, part protected wilderness, Rouge Park is comprised of 47 square kilometres of historic farms, wetlands, undisturbed meadows and forests. Bordering Lake Ontario, the park even has a great beach. Hiking and camping are popular, and the many trails offer fantastic views. The area has been inhabited by humans for thousands of years - evidence of historic and prehistoric communities dot the park and a number of significant archaeological finds have been made here. A haven for wildlife, the park today is home to vast numbers of birds and insects, plus deer, beavers, snakes and other reptiles. There is an app created by the University of Toronto's Scarborough's students to make sure you enjoy everything there is to offer, while staying safe if you haven't exercised your great outdoors muscles in awhile.
