Play at the water park

The perfect stop on a hot summer day to get the kids (and adults) to cool down! 


Play some tennis

The Town of Hearst maintains 4 tennis courts during the summer.  Lighting is provided every day until 11pm.  For those who would like to practice individually, there is a board on site for this.  The tennis courts are located behind the Hearst High School.


Walk the hiking trails at the Fushimi Provincial Park

The Fushimi Lake Provincial Park has two hiking trails to offer. The first one being the Achilles Lake Trail, which is a 1 km trail leading to a small lake at the north side of the campground, offering jaw dropping sunsets. The second trail is the Fire Tower Trail, a 7 km trail leading to one of the few original fire lookout towers left in Ontario. The tower was built in the 1930s and was used to keep watch for fires in summertime.

Visit Nations' Park

Designed by local artist, Laurent Vaillancourt, the Nations' Park represents most of the Town's local ethnic heritage. Created as part of the Town's centennial anniversary, each branch of the tree represents a culture present in Town. The tree is seated on the back of a turtle, representing the Indigenous heritage and communities.
