Conservation Parks is a partnership between the two conservation authorities that offers a variety of park locations and natural areas for the public to visit. Conservation Parks are located across the GTA and Headwaters region where visitors can explore, rediscover nature and spend valuable time together creating new memories with family and friends.

CVC and TRCA began their Conservation Parks partnership in 2015 to create more opportunities for residents and visitors to experience and appreciate nature. Each conservation park offers something unique for visitors. The Conservation Parks membership grants general admission to all CVC and TRCA parks and offers special discounts on rentals, in-park experiences and merchandise.

The Conservation Parks membership program supports the work of CVC and TRCA to help people understand, enjoy and look after the environment.
