Bailey Ecological Park

Bailey Ecological Park

This 10 hectare oasis in the Town of Newmarket is a valuable bird and animal sanctuary featuring the East Holland River oxbow ponds, wetlands and forested areas.

The Nokiidaa/Tom Taylor trail goes through Bailey Ecological Park, crossing under Mulock Drive and heading southwest towards Yonge Street. The trail, linking Aurora and East Gwillimbury, follows the East Holland River and provides opportunities to observe wildlife in the river and in adjacent wetlands.

Parking is available at Wesley Brooks Conservation Area (Fairy Lake) or the Town of Newmarket office, with foot or bicycle access provided along the river under Mulock Drive.
