Recreational Activities Available


Gainsborough Conservation Area is a rugged park with no formal trails or activities. It conserves a forest block with sloughs (‘wet pockets’), a diversity of plants and limited disturbances, making it an ideal refuge. The public is welcomed to this property to enjoy the tranquil and peaceful woodlot. Parking is available next to the NPCA workshop located on the property.
