Cheltenham Badlands reopens

Saturday, September 22, 2018, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The Ontario Heritage Trust – along with its managing partners, the Credit Valley Conservation and the Bruce Trail Conservancy – are proud to announce the reopening of the Cheltenham Badlands to the public on September 22, 2018.

The Cheltenham Badlands is one of Ontario’s geological treasures, first formed at the base of an ancient sea over 400 million years ago. The site is a provincially significant Area of Natural and Scientific Interest and one of the most recognizable and visited natural heritage landmarks in southern Ontario.


Please come to enjoy the view but be sure to park legally in the parking lot or use the shuttle bus service offered from Terra Cotta Conservation Area. All visitors are asked to be good to the Badlands and stay on the trails and boardwalks so that future generations can continue to enjoy this site.
