  Canadian National Parks

VISIT Rouge National Urban Park:

The landscape of Rouge National Urban Park was formed after the retreat of the vast continental ice sheets, some 13,000 years ago. As the ice retreated, a layer of sand and silt up to 100 m thick was left behind, to be carved by water and wind into the rolling hills and valleys that can be seen today.

Park Details

Rouge National Urban Park was established in 2015, and has a total area of 19,840 acres (31 square miles, or 80 square kilometers).
