Acquisition in Durham Conservation Area began in 1959 with the donation of the upper dam to the Authority. Between 1962 - 1979, five parcels were further acquired to bring the total acreage to 61 ha (150 acres). Over time the park has been developed into a multi-use recreational area. It is also an excellent example of proper flood plain management. For more information, please call
