Island Lake Conservation

An easy to get to park on the edge of Orangeville.  A good sized flood control reservoir means swimming, boating, picnicking, washrooms and fishing for warm water fish such as bass, pike, black crappie and yellow perch.

This four season trail is designed to be all accessible. Its wide base, made up of packed gravel screenings, make it suitable for bicycles, wheelchairs and strollers; as well as activities such as hiking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing.  No motorized vehicles please.

There are numerous recreation opportunities at the area such as beach, boat rentals, ice-huts in the winter and group facilities.  All of the trails are well maintained and an area map is available at the gatehouse.
