The Mountjoy Historical Conservation Area is located alongside the Mattagami River and provides 7 hectares of beautiful greenspace, ideal for walking, picnicking and relaxing. The area features walking trails, public washrooms, sports fields and plenty of parking. It also has great views of the Mattagami River with convenient access if you want to launch a canoe or kayak. This Conservation Area is easily accessible from Riverside Drive or Liliane Ave. The park forms part of the Timmins Recreation Trail Network and is connected by a trail to the public boat launch.

In 1960 this area was completely covered in flood waters when the Mattagami River overtopped its banks and caused millions of dollars in damages. Many residences and businesses were removed from the floodplain along the Mattagami River in the early 70’s, which allowed the Mattagami Region Conservation Authority to develop this greenspace.

Mountjoy Historical Conservation Area is available to book for your community events.
