Find your place at Halton Parks

“We know that visitors to our parks like to enjoy the outdoors in many different ways, so we’ve created four distinct profiles which we think reflect this,” said Gene Matthews, Director Conservation Lands. “You can now pick which profile fits you best and we’ll help you find activities or events that match it.”

The four profiles are Family Fun, Explorer, Knowledge Seeker, and Adventurer. Halton Parks members and park visitors are encouraged to go to the website, www.haltonparks.ca, find their profile and register. Once registered, you will receive exclusive offers and special events specific to your profile, as well as other information to assist you in seeing what Conservation Halton’s seven parks might have to offer for your interests.

Here is a look at the four profiles:
