Outdoor Life and Activities
Would you like to have your child participate in a summer full of adventures?
Every summer, with the help of three dynamic and bilingual supervisors, the recreation Centre organise a variety of activities. A theme is chosen each year for the playground and it is for children 6 to 11 years old (Grade 1 to grade 6). The activities allow children to move and have fun from June to August.

Dottori Park is situated on Kipawa Road across of Tembec's industrial complex. It's an ideal place for a walk or a picnic on the shores of Lake Témiscamingue.
Bike and pedestrian path
Dismantled in the 1990's, part of the railroad network is now transformed into a linear park. It follows the "Lac aux Brochets" for 6.7 km. This pathway is mostly evocative on the environment's flora and wildlife. Whatever the season, you can engage in some activities such as walking, biking or even snowmobiling. The calm and the beauty of the environment invite to relax. This linear park is also part of a wide regional project and the unification of the unused railways for the use of recreo-touristic.

Baseball Field (Irwin Park)
Located on Kipawa Road at the corner of the bypass at the southern entrance of the town, this sporting park regroups a baseball field, a soccer field and a tennis court. The name "Parc Irwin" was given in honor of Sir William "Bill" Irwin, Témiscaming Mayor from 1956 to 1963. A monument and a commemorative plaque were set-up in his honor.
The baseball field is used by the following leagues:
- Adult softball
- Teenager softball
- Minor softball
The infield is covered with stone dust and the outfield with grass. There is also some lighting for evening games as well as two shelters; one for each team.
The soccer field does not have the regulated dimensions but it accepts friendly soccer matches.
Now located on rue Lafort, matches are being held based on a pre-determined schedule.
