Glasgow Day Use Area

Rouge National Urban Park

The Glasgow Day Use Area is the northernmost boundary of Rouge National Urban Park and headwaters of the West Duffins Creek. Enjoy the contrasting landscape from farmland to the softwood forest canopy, ponds and rolling terrain typical of the Oak Ridges Moraine.

To the south of the parking lot on Concession Road 2, a cemetery offers a reminder of the area's settlement history.
