Rainwater Conservation Area (Traditional Chinese: 雨水保育地區; French: Réserve faunique de l'Eau-de-Pluie) is a conservation area in extreme eastern City of Lisi in the Regional Municipality of Gravenhurst of the Imaginary Lands of Nicholas. The conservation area is located in between the communities of Bruce and Flanders, covering an area of 15.1 km² immediately north of Lake Rainwater. The conservation area is managed by the Gravenhurst Regional Park Commission (GPRC).
The area has been set aside as a conservation area in 1977, to protect the surrounding environment of Lake Rainwater from the increased urbanization and industrialization of Lisi. It also acts as a border buffer between the Regional Municipality of Gravenhurst and Pickering County.
There are plans to extend the conservation area to include the neighbouring Bruce Urban Park, and along the Lisi Creek to Lake Haldimond, and also north along Highway 9. This extension is part of the Lisi Greenbelt Plan that will comprise of a series of parkland and greenspace around the existing urban area of Lisi. This will be put in place to limit the urban sprawling of Lisi and to protect the sensitive ecology just north of the current urban limits.
Since this is a conservation area, there are no camp spaces and RV parkings available. There are also no amenities present in the area. However, a lookout is present along Bruce Road East (Regional Road 26). There are currently no plans in upgrading this conservation area to a full scale regional park.
In June 2015, the French name of the area has been changed to de l'Eau-de-Pluie.
