Island Lake Conservation Area

Island Lake Conservation Area offers outdoor adventures all year round. Located on the northeast corner of Orangeville, Island Lake features a 182-hectare reservoir surrounded by wetland, forest and meadow. A well-maintained system of trails guides hikers and cyclists over boardwalks and through tree-lined paths.

In the winter, snowshoeing, skating and ice fishing leave no time for hibernation. Take to the lake in the summer. Explore the waters by canoe or kayak or bait your hook at this popular fishing spot. Island Lake's waterfront amphitheatre also acts as a natural venue for many seasonal events like outdoor yoga and live theatre performances.

Monora Park

Monora Park is a 16-hectare park featuring 18 kilometres of multi-use trails in an undisturbed natural landscape. As you hike, bike, ski or ride the trails, you are sure to be impressed with the natural beauty of the environment.
