Mabel Davis Conservation Area

Mabel Davis Conservation Area

​Between the Tannery Mall and Bayview Parkway in Newmarket, there is a strip of land that was donated to the Conservation Authority in 1969 by Mabel Davis, a resident of Newmarket. This 7 hectare oasis in the middle of town is home to a wide range of plants and animals including several bird species, cotton tail rabbits, muskrats, raccoons and regionally rare black maple trees. The 1,400 metre trail, an important link in a municipal trail system, runs along the banks of the East Holland River. The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority administrative offices are also situated on this property.
