The service is free, although a credit card deposit will be required at the time of registration. Reservations can be made on a first-come, first served basis, says Parkbus.

There are also no park fees for Rouge National Urban Park itself.

The TRCA describes the Rouge Park as a place that provides “a continuous ecological corridor in the Toronto Area: combination of natural, cultural and agricultural features including 1,700 species of plants and animals, over 10,000 years of human history, along with some of the best remaining wetlands, forests and agricultural lands in the Greater Toronto Area.”
