Esli Dodge Conservation Area

88 Main Street S, Forest

The 20-acre conservation area is part of St. Clair Region Conservation Authority, but is maintained by the municipality. There is a man-made lake but swimming is not allowed.

The island in the lake acts as a stage for theatrical performances during the summer. The hillside, which can comfortably seat over 6,000 people, is different from many other outdoor theatres by its superb acoustics and sound system which allow every person in the audience to hear perfectly without straining.

The conservation area is also a popular location for wedding ceremonies.
