If you haven't visited the Toronto Region Conservation Authority's Cold Creek Conservation Area (now under the auspices of the Township of King's Parks, Recreation and Culture Department) then you may not be aware that the gateway to the grounds is now open six days a week between 8.30 a.m. and 4.30 p.m. (see new sign above). Outside of these hours, one can still access the conservation area but you will have to walk in from the gateway on the east side of the 11th Concession of King (halfway between the King Road and the 15th Sideroad). Visit the Township of King's website for activities at Cold Creek. In the photo below, a number of adults and children enjoyed their time around the fire-pit behind the Education Centre, after the snow/ice/rain storms this past weekend. The sun came out for a while and temperatures warmed up enough for a good time to be had by all. including warm drinks and treats. The gates were open this Sunday to accommodate the private function. Groups reserving time on Sundays have the option of the gates being open or closed. Snowshoes and Cross-country skis are available at Cold Creek, but it is recommended that folks give the Rec Dept. a call to check on availability.
