The Samuel Wilmot Nature Area is comprised of 77 hectares of stream valley lands and wetlands on the shore of Lake Ontario. It is located between the CN Railway and Lake Ontario, Toronto Street to the east and Cobbledick Road in Newcastle, to the west. The Waterfront Trail traverses the property and walking/hiking trails provide access to shoreline, Newcastle Marsh and Wilmot Creek. Wilmot Creek and the marsh are both significant components of the ecosystem of Lake Ontario’s north shore. In recognition of the environmental significance and recreational values of Wilmot Creek and the Lake Ontario waterfront, the Municipality of Clarington has set goals for establishing a Nature Area on these lands, preserving them for ecological benefit and the health and enjoyment of Clarington residents.
