Places to go in Lanark County: MPP and Cliffland!

Murphys Point Park
Ontario has a fabulous number of places like parks and wetlands, proudly protected from development. I happened upon this one while researching. I have to put it on my 'to visit' list, but it's going to be a busy season!

Murphys Point Park is having a grand bridge dedication ceremony. I live nearby, and I'm on the Board of Directors. It's going to be a great year to be outdoors!

Here is a great spot for Ontario information:
Ontario Highlands, Eastern Ontario, featured a video of this spot - cliffLAND.

THE CLIFFORD FAMILY PROTECTED WILDERNESS cliffLAND, previously referred to as the ALBA WILDERNESS PROPERTY and once home to the ALBA WILDERNESS SCHOOL, is composed of 1250 acres of beautiful wilderness located high in the hills of the Lanark Highlands. At the end of the Hills of Peace Road sits this special piece of the Canadian Shield meeting the limestone of the east and south and is made especially unique by significant underlays of marble which produces an incredible richness of biodiversity. It is also part of that wonderful narrow ribbon or biological corridor known as the Frontenac Axis stretching from Algonquin to the Adirondacks.

Good Luck with the new bridge dedication ceremony!

I've never visited Canada , but I've heard a lot about its great outdoors. It seems canadians know how to enjoy their outdoors despite the cold climate.
