Diverse habitats including ponds, a swamp, the Bowmanville Creek, meadows and woodlands.

Enniskillen Conservation Area (65 hectares) has a cedar swamp, open wetlands and bubbling brooks—everything you would expect to find on the south slopes of the provincially significant Oak Ridges Moraine. It is located only a stone’s-throw away from the small village of Enniskillen and offers 5.5 km of trails through a beautiful mixed deciduous forest that includes the Bowmanville Creek and two ponds.

The area is known for its local history including the Moorey Grist Mill (built just north of the Education Centre, in 1874 and dismantled in 1956) that used to take advantage of the constant supply of water that continues to run through the property today. Although the mill no longer exists, you can still see the earthen dam, which held back the creek water to produce the millpond.

 

Have your cameras and phones ready for photos and videos as you never know what you might see.

Enniskillen Conservation Area’s parking lot was expanded in 2022, as more and more people are seeking opportunities to enjoy local nature. Funding for this expansion project came from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
