Metcalfe Geoheritage Park

Canada’s first municipal geoheritage park.

The 22 samples on display are sedimentary rocks of Ordovician age from our area, about 490 to 440 million years old, along with older igneous and metamorphic rocks of Precambrian age, from about 2.5 billion to 1 billion years ago. They collectively illustrate many of the features that allow geoscientists to unravel Earth’s remarkable geological history.
