Parks and Recreation

Norfolk County has so much to offer its residents and visitors, with amenities and services for people of all ages and lifestyles. It is saturated with natural beauty, steeped in history and  small town charm, lakefront, miles of hiking trails and countless neighbourhood parks and green spaces.

Our extensive network of trails, ample green and beautifully preserved conservation areas make connecting with your outdoors easier than ever.

Get involved and meet new people through a healthy activity. Join a fitness class, attend an adult workshop, spend time in the pool at the Annaleise Carr Aquatic Centre or join a 50 Plus Group!
