The weather is warming up, which means it’s time to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors! Fortunately, Milton is home to some truly stunning parks, trails, and green spaces. There’s no better time to explore them than now—especially if you’ve been feeling a little cooped up as of late.

Here are five beautiful parks to visit in Milton when you could use some fresh air…

1) Kelso Conservation Area

At an incredible 981 acres, Kelso Conservation Area is a true refuge in the Milton area. Along with a lake, boardwalk, and sandy beach (complete with concessions), you’ll find no shortage of cycling and hiking trails. Kelso is known as a favourite destination for Ontario mountain bikers, while those who prefer to get their exercise on foot appreciate the fact that the Escarpment and Lime Kiln Trails are bike-free. When the fall rolls around, the leaves change spectacularly—and in the colder months, check out the ski hill!
