About Robert Edmondson Conservation Area
Robert Edmondson Conservation Area is located at 10027 First Line in Milton, just north of No. 10 Sideroad. The former name, Burns Conservation Area, originated from the property sale by James Gerald Burns. In 2013, facilities were updated and the park was renamed to honour the 38 years of service Robert Edmondson devoted to the work of Conservation Halton and to the environmental protection of not only the Halton Watershed, but across the Niagara Escarpment. For more information on all Conservation Halton Parks, and the recreational opportunities available, visit the Halton Parks website.
