Experience the outdoors with family and friends at Boyd Conservation Park. Hike through the forest, play on green spaces along the Humber River, and enjoy picnics, BBQs and fun.

Located within the headwaters of the Don and Humber Rivers, Boyd Conservation Park offers a unique opportunity to enjoy nature in the city. The park is one of the GTA’s foremost summer picnic destinations for families and large groups. The steep-sided Humber River Valley and tall trees provide a quiet refuge where you can relax and enjoy the outdoors.


TRCA reminds all nature seekers to be extremely cautious when enjoying time outside this winter, and to stay on designated trails at all times.

Ice is never 100% safe. Please STAY OFF local TRCA rivers, streams, ponds, reservoirs, wetlands and marshes. Conditions are not being monitored and ice may be unsafe.

Venturing out onto the ice is NOT a permitted activity at TRCA parks. Do not put yourself and others at risk.


Please Note:

  • Prior to coming to this location, every visitor must do the Ontario Ministry of Health self-assessment for COVID-19. If they do not pass the assessment, they should not visit the location.
  • Wearing a mask or a face covering is required in indoor TRCA facilities as per municipal by-laws. All visitors entering an indoor premise are required to wear a mask or face covering while inside. Please arrive prepared with a mask or face covering.



STAY SAFE! Stay on the trails you see on the map.
