If you are looking for activities that will help get you and your family outdoors, while also keeping you cool through some of Toronto region’s hot summer days, then check out one of TRCA’s conservation parks which offer a variety of waterfront views!

Petticoat Conservation Park sits on the shoreline of Lake Ontario, providing access to the waterfront trail connecting over 150 communities across 3,600 kilometers, including Ajax to Mississauga in TRCA’s jurisdiction. For those more adventurous, Tommy Thompson Park offers one of the most stunning, unobstructed view of the sunrise as it dawns over Lake Ontario.
