We've visited about 30 National Parks (and Park Reserves) in Canada, and countless provincial parks. The ball has been rolling on making Rouge River into a National Park (NP) since 2011, but much remains to be done to reach the NP standard, notably better signage...More

We walked for several hours on trails that are neatly kept and reasonably well marked (except for one that crosses Twin River Drive). The park was staffed that afternoon by National Parks employees and they were stationed all around the trails and able to easily...More

Trails in this Park are easy level. There are not good and clear signs to indicate the right ways. I have not seen any animals (birds or beaver or squirrel). There are 4 trails to do: Orchard, Rouge, Vista and Woodland. All are easy...

Just next to that zoo, you won't imagine you will find a national park! We went for a festival and enjoyed it very much, hope to go back soon!

We went for a walk on a cool March day. There is no winter maintenance in this park. The riverside trail was fairly flat, but the shoreline had eroded away in several parts and made the walkway very narrow or dangerous. The other trail we...More

While I never felt totally removed from the surrounding city, it is nonetheless a very inviting escape from the hustle and bustle. Lots of trails and wildlife to enjoy, and especially nice around fall with the colourful leaves. There are many access points and intersecting...More

This is Canada's FIRST URBAN NATIONAL Park. What differentiates it from our other National parks is it's proximity to Toronto, the largest metropolitan area in the country. While it brings to mind my other favourite urban park- Central Park in NYC, when the Rouge National...More

Scarborough
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a
district heavily influenced by immigration. With a
number of low-rent shopping and dining options making
it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one
of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise
green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for
bargains and discounts. It also draws in
photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous

Hi. For the entrance off Kingston Road, there are no BBQ grills in the park area. I cannot say if they are in the campground area.

I don't believe that there is any cost to go on the guided walks. They are lead by volunteers, very knowledgeable ones
