Last chance for campers to enjoy Glen Rouge Campground this season|
| || ||
Parks and Recreation - Glen Rouge Campground, located in Rouge Park on the
north side of Kingston Road between Sheppard Avenue East and Altona Road,
closes for the season after the Labour Day weekend on Tuesday, September 3. It
is the last chance for campers to stay at Toronto's only campground until it
re-opens next May.
"We've had a great season," said Mary Creighton, Manager of Recreation for
Toronto Parks and Recreation. "Glen Rouge Campground offers visitors a unique
urban wilderness experience. You can hike or paddle into the heart of the Rouge
Park, an ecological treasure and one of the largest urban parks in the country.
At the same time, the campground is convenient and easily accessible to public
transit - we are just minutes away from tourist attractions such as the Toronto
Zoo, Lake Ontario beaches and 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, and newly renovated washrooms with showers.
