Glen Rouge Campground opens Thursday, May 15, 2003
  
Parks and Recreation - The 2003 camping season at Glen Rouge Campground opens
on Thursday, May 15, 2003. Glen Rouge, in Rouge Park at Kingston Road and
Sheppard Avenue East, is the only campground in Toronto, and one of a limited
number of campgrounds that will be open in Ontario this holiday weekend.

Glen Rouge Campground is a unique urban wilderness experience offering the best
of both worlds for travellers. Nature enthusiasts can hike or paddle into the
heart of the Rouge Park, an ecological treasure and the largest urban park in
the country. Those looking for adventure in the City will also find the
campground is just minutes away from tourist attractions - the Toronto Zoo,
Lake Ontario beaches and a GO Train ride away from all the excitement of
downtown Toronto.

The 8.7 hectare campground is equipped with 125 sites, including 87 that are
fully-serviced for recreational vehicles and 11 that are designed specifically
for backpackers. The facility is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week
throughout the camping season and is equipped with public phones, firewood
sales, washrooms with showers and laundry facilities.

To register for a campsite, call 416-338-CAMP (2267). For more information
