Lemoine Point Conservation Area was purchased by the CRCA in 1975 to preserve this significant piece of land for future generations. It is a very popular and heavily-used Conservation Area with more than 2,500 metres of shoreline on Lake Ontario. It is also the last large publicly accessible tract of wooded Lake Ontario shoreline in the region, making it of great importance both as a recreational and a natural area.

Bordered by Lake Ontario and Collins Bay, Lemoine Point is 136 hectares of forest, field and marsh, with a spectacular waterfront. Many opportunities for recreation and nature appreciation are available in all seasons.

11 km of trails cross flat to gently rolling woodland, field and marsh. Scenic lookouts and benches are located along the trails.

Handicapped accessible trails are available from the north and south parking lots.
