Known locally as "Fairy Lake", this conservation area has become a focal point for community events. Free concerts, a family fishing festival and numerous holiday celebrations have been held at this beautiful site. A heavily wooded island and several marshy areas at the park's southern end provide excellent nesting and feeding grounds for local waterfowl.
While the groomed trails, covered pavilion, washrooms, and playground entice visitors to stretch their legs, or enjoy a picnic. The four hectare (10 acre) reservoir was created when a small dam was constructed, at the north end of the park, to provide flood control for the lower Holland River.
This property is near to the intersection of Main Street and Gorham Street in Newmarket. Parking is available in a lot off Water Street, opposite Civic Drive. The driveway leads to two separate lots. This Conservation Area can also be accessed from the Nokiidaa trail.
