My boyfriend really liked this park, but in all honesty it's a lot of empty fields and some walking trails with ordinary looking trees. Not really that interesting, but if you live in this city with not much to do... Why not? Also, if you like peaceful walking trails that pose no difficulty, it's cool as well. I've seen better water ponds/rivers in my life.

P.S. I accidentally went in during the weekend with my boyfriend without getting ticket'd- because we walked in. I think you'll be dinged with a fee if you drive in. But since my boyfriend and I found a walking trail through the park, we avoided fees... lol

This conservation park is located in Markham. You pay $4.50 for adults and $3.50 for seniors and 15 and under it’s free. The park is huge. And there’s two parking lots. The second lot is further down and much larger. The first one your parking on grass and dirt road. There’s picnic benches and areas near both parking lots. You can only use charcoal barbecues and no alcohol allowed in the park. There’s lots of cemented paths and bridges. I counted 6 bridges. We walked a half hour to 45 minutes from the first parking lot to the dam.
I liked all the wild flowers, wetlands and forests. It’s a great escape from the noisy city.

我們是探索 Rouge Valley Trail 以及 Forest Therapy Trail ,想找理想的騎腳踏車路線,而走到了這個小水壩及公園,這裡的步道相當美麗,據說這是 Markham 地區頗受歡迎的景點,步道也可連至於人村的 Toogood Pond 方向,有待下一次再探了。

Nice clean area, lots of tables and benches to rest or eat at. Always busy, good for family walks, bike rides, and running trails. Can skate on the pond in the winter, pretty views in the fall. Good area to go for walks or hikes especially during Covid!

I went there last weekend at the temperature -9c. The lake was frozen and people are doing skating, hokey on the lake. You can walk on the lake from the Conservation Park to the suspension bridge. It was quite beautiful. There were also nice spots for tobogganing. It was a fun afternoon for your family since we are all stuck at home during the pandemic. Now I am not sure if you are supposed to go out with friends although I saw groups of young people doing hokey shoot around.

During our COVID 19 lockdown and other alerts, we were looking for a place with space and for my kids to run around and have fun. A friend mentioned Milne Dam Conservation Park as a place we can go and have some fun without worrying about crowds. I had been to this park before, and it just slipped my mind about it. I packed up the kids, got some pizza from Little Ceasars, and went there for a picnic.

The park is huge and although we were intimidated by all the cars being there, we were surprised to find how spacious the park was. Despite the fact that there were many people there, there was so much room for us to be safe and be physically distanced from other people. We found a few empty picnic tables by the water and had a nice lunch under a tree with lots of shade. It was a warm early fall day and the trees had yet to start turning colour.

Once we finished our picnic we spent the rest of our visit exploring the park. There are trails and marked paths all over the park and in the woods as well. We explored all afternoon and had a great time. We needed to burn all those calories after a pizza lunch.

The park itself is very clean, well maintained, and for the most part, the restrooms were clean as well. There is a fee to enter the park which only cost us around four dollars. There are a few different parking lots and parking is available and since cars are coming and going, we were able to easily find a parking spot within minutes of arriving. The overall experience was amazing and the kids had a great time. I highly recommend this park.

Milne Park is not only close by but it is well kept. Love to go there and take a small picnic. The atmosphere is serene and peaceful. The pond is very calming. although I had an incident there summer time. When my son just bought a canoe, we went there and some man kept waving to us as he had got his line stuck in the pond. I tried to ignore but my husband kept urging me to help, soo we rowed out to help. Then when I tried to pull the line free, I overbalanced and we capsized. People ran to help us in 2 - 3 ft feet of water. Ha ha! So much for excitement in Milne Park. Not to mention the thick guck we fell into. What a big mess. As we live nearby my son had to go get me towels clothes and shoes. Wish there was a shower.

It is a nice place to spend with your family and friends. Beautiful trees, bushes and flowers and a nice waling trail.
