History of the Park
From 1965 to 2007 Crowe Valley Conservation Authority (CVCA) operated the Crowe Bridge Conservation Area as a public recreation park. The weir dam located in the Crowe River creates a wonderful swimming area with peaceful picnicing spaces and hiking trails that have been enjoyed by people from all over the world. Over the years the land has been extensively developed for public recreation by the CVCA and now has several wide gravel roads, gravel walking trails, several parking lots, a wilderness mini putt, and washrooms.
