Description

Join the Toronto Hub of Impact Travel Alliance and ParkBus for a free trip to Rouge National Urban Park! (more info on both organizations below)

In line with the United Nations Global Goal of Responsible Consumption, ITA encourages everyone to research sustainable tourist attractions in the cities they visit and what better way to get started than at home?

ParkBus offers sustainable, equal access to nature through collective transportation (a bus!), thereby ensuring more people can appreciate the outdoors, maximizing their health and well-being whilst minimizing their environmental impact. Since 2010, ParkBus has helped thousands of Canadians access the great outdoors. And on July 29, they're taking us to Canada's first Urban National Park!

The bus leaves at 11:00 am sharp but please arrive at least 15 minutes prior. Once we arrive at the park, you're free to explore, picnic, bird-watch, take photographs, just relax, or all of the above. They'll be plenty of time to see what Rouge Park is all about. The bus will depart Rouge Park at 4:30 pm to return to the city.

Pickup and drop off are at 30 Carlton Street. Travel time is approximately 30-45 minutes.

ParkBus recommends that you bring with you lots of extra water, snacks, lunch, sunscreen and bug spray. There are very few amenities near the park, and facilities in the park are currently limited. They also advise that you bring what you need to spend the day outdoors, dress for the weather and wear closed toed footwear. Check the weather forecast before you come and consider bringing rain gear with you just in case.
