Rouge is the largest nature park within a core of a metropolitan area in North America. It stretches from Lake Ontario in the south, north to the post-glacial Oak Ridges Moraine in York Region.
Established in 1995 by the Province of Ontario, the park consists of 50 square kilometres (12356 acres) of parkland. The park protects 12% of the Rouge River watershed. The Rouge River remains the healthiest river that flows through Toronto. Ecological preservation and restoration were needed.
