About Ken Reid Conservation Area

Located just outside beautiful Lindsay, ON, Ken Reid Conservation Area is a popular destination for nature lovers, hikers and birders alike. The land was acquired by Kawartha Conservation in 1981 using a grant from the Nature Conservancy of Canada and further developed into a recreational and conservation area using a grant from the Ministry of Natural Resources.

Today, Ken Reid is managed by Kawartha Conservation staff who maintains several facilities, including a playground, washrooms, accessible trails and an off-leash dog park. They also host a number of programs at the park, such as day camps and outdoor classrooms. More than 10 kilometers of diverse trails meander through Ken Reid.
