Timmins is a haven for outdoor and active living enthusiasts.

Hundreds of lakes and rivers in the area provide opportunities for fishing, water sports, and paddling.  The Mattagami River is located right in Timmins and is the location of the Great Canadian Kayak Challenge and Festival.  Canoes and kayaks are available for rent from local suppliers or bring your own and explore the river.  The developed waterfront makes it easy to get into the river.

Local recreational trails such as Gillies Lake and the Hersey Lake Conservation Area are great for walking, running and cycling.  A walking trail around Little Pearl Lake is just on the west side of the McIntyre.
