Skating and hockey can be enjoyed on our outdoor skating rink.

SUMMER ACTIVITIES


Elk Lake has one children's playground and two beaches, one of which is supervised with summer swimming lessons. The town also maintains a commercial wharf and two boat launches. Summer activities include baseball, hiking, beach volleyball, water activities and much more.

NEW EQUIPMENT AT PLAYGROUND

Alice’s Wonderland now has a new play structure called the ‘Chilliwack’. This unit has three slides, monkey bars, climbers, swing-a-ling, and plenty more for the kids to try out including tones of sand to play in. There is also a new teeter totter, two new rockin’ riders, and new swing seats.

On behalf of the Township of James Recreation Committee, I would like to thank the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the Royal Canadian Legion for their donations and the installation crew for all their hard work.

Enjoy the new equipment!

A focal point of the community’s social and recreational events is the Community Centre. This building consists of the banquet hall, the curling rink (3 sheets), and a heated lobby.

The Township of James is located at the northernmost point of the Makobe-Grays River Provincial Park and Elk Lake provides a convenient pick up and re-supply point for canoeists through this park.

If you would like more information on the activities or events happening in Elk Lake, please refer to the Events Page or call the Township Office at 705-678-2237.
