Cold Creek Conservation Area is an ecologically diverse and sustainable natural area. It is a model of sustainability that can be achieved by protecting and enhancing the area’s natural environment while providing outdoor education, cultural and heritage experiences and recreation. Cold Creek Conservation Area is continually improved and managed through self-sustaining revenues and community-based stewardship.

The Cold Creek Conservation Area consists of 190 hectares within the Humber River watershed (a designated Canadian Heritage River). The Area is located on Concession Road 11, three kilometres north of the King Side Road midway between the communities of Bolton and Nobleton in King Township within the Regional Municipality of York. A portion of the property lies within the “Natural Linkage” policy area of the Oak Ridges Moraine. The Conservation Area is significant due to its unique natural features. Existing mixed conifer swamp forest contains black spruce which is rare in Southern Ontario and is home to a wide array of plant and animal species.
