Rouge Park Alliance

Rouge Park is a partnership park, with land and funds from the Province of Ontario, the Government of Canada, the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, municipal governments and other agencies. The board of directors for the Park was the Rouge Park Alliance, a partnership of 12 government organizations and one not-for-profit group. As Rouge Park transitions to a National Urban Park, the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority will be the governing body during this time.
