Hiking

Heart Lake Conservation Park’s hiking trails offer some of the most panoramic vistas in southern Ontario. Let exploration captivate you. Tall ridges surround you as you enter the woodlands. Curved trails guide you up hills, through flowered meadows, and past a still kettle lake nestled deep in the forest’s heart. Wander past hidden marshes and along a wooden boardwalk, discovering more of the beauty of the forest with every step.

Medicine Wheel Garden

The concept of a medicine wheel garden at Heart Lake came as a vision from a male elder of the Anishnawbe Nation. Working together, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), Peel Aboriginal Network, Heart Lake Community Action Area Group and the City of Brampton, created the Medicine Wheel Garden (Gitigaan Mashkiki) at Heart Lake Conservation Park, a space for healing, celebration and peace. The official opening was celebrated on May 20, 2010.
