Plans are underway to transform the Beare Road Landfill site into Beare Hill Park. The Park will be surrounded by the proposed Rouge National Urban Park and together they will provide a seamless park-visiting experience.

The Beare Road Landfill was operational until 1983 and is still managed by the City Solid Waste Management Division as a closed landfill. Since then, natural regeneration and volunteer tree planting have created natural areas with forest, meadow and wetland habitats used by wildlife including species at risk. With its natural areas, capacity for a host of different recreational trails, and the spectacular view from the top of the hill, the landfill site has great potential as a park destination.
