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, 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 Area, a space for healing, celebration and peace. The official opening was celebrated on May 20, 2010.

TreeCaching Trail

Watershed TreeCaching provides an opportunity for trail users to embark on a self guided tour of the landscape. With the aid of smart phone technology, participants will learn about the tree species they encounter while discovering the rich cultural and natural heritage of our watersheds.
