Thoughts About Art and Community

The Rouge National Urban Park Outreach and Education team is out and about in the communities surrounding the park! We promote the Rouge and Parks Canada places, provide education on various environmental themes, and foster the connection between the public and the environment.


The park offers many free events, guided walks, camping, hiking, birding, fishing, photography and programs such as Learn-To Camp, and volunteering.
