Rouge Gateway Visitor Learning and Community Centre

This future flagship visitor, learning and community centre (VLC) will welcome people to Rouge National Urban Park and help foster understanding, appreciation and stewardship of the park. It will create a space where visitors and residents can learn about the Indigenous, natural, cultural and agricultural heritage of the park, and Parks Canada's role in protecting places from coast to coast to coast. Located across the street from the Toronto Zoo, the site of the future Rouge visitor, learning and community space highlights Rouge Valley landscapes and vistas. It is connected to public transportation and several iconic park trails. The future Rouge visitor, learning and community centre will orient visitors, be a gathering place, and offer learning through integrated interpretive installations and design.
