Rouge Valley Conservation Centre

Pearse House (now the Rouge Valley Conservation Centre), occupied by the Pearse family until the 1930s, was eventually acquired by the City for the Metro Toronto Zoo. In 1993, the house was moved to its current location and, after years of neglect, was restored by the Rouge Valley Foundation. Come and explore this house and wander the surrounding trail system.
