Recreation

The Town of Porcupine Plain is proud to provide our residents and visitors with a variety of recreation opportunities:

 

LARWOOD SHAW MEMORIAL POOL

The Larwood-Shaw Memorial Pool, constructed in 1995, is dedicated to the memory of Bert Larwood & Jack Shaw. Grateful acknowledgment is given to the Don & Marion Wheaton Family, whose financial assistance made this community project possible. The facility is a symbol of the widespread support from the citizens of Porcupine Plain and surrounding communities and of the tireless efforts of those individuals whose work resulted in its completion.

Unfortunately, the Larwood-Shaw Memorial Pool could not open the summer of 2019 due to structural damage, and will remain closed until repairs or replacement can be made.

WINTER OUTDOOR RECREATION

The fun doesn’t stop after the snow falls — in fact, that’s when the real adventure begins!  The local snowmobile club grooms over 100 miles of pristine snowmobile trails, which connect to the groomed trails of Hudson Bay, Kelvington, Lintlaw, and Greenwater Lake Provincial Park, for an unforgettable snowmobiling experience.  Our summer walking trails are maintained by a dedicated volunteer, perfect for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.  Nearby lakes offer opportunities for ice-fishing. And the local Affinity Credit Union, Parkland Co-op and Fire Department team up to provide an outdoor rink.

Stay tuned for more updates — dogsled tours coming soon!
