Recreational Opportunities

Nestled at the heart of the Great Lakes near the Canadian Shield, Sault Ste. Marie boasts unique and unforgettable outdoor recreational opportunities.

Visit the City of Sault Ste. Marie website for information on sports, parks and other recreational opportunities. The site also contains a Community Centres page, which lists the city-owned arenas, pools and indoor turf (soccer) facilities.

The Sault area offers everything from fishing and boating, to soaring ice and rock climbing. And after that, why not try your hand at ziplining or shipwreck diving. When you've done that, spend the night under the stars at one of the many nearby campsites.

In Sault Ste. Marie, all of this - and much, much more - is available. And it's all within a short drive from the city core.

More information on the area's recreational opportunities is available on the Tourism Sault Ste. Marie website.

Information on other sports and fitness opportunities, including dance academies, gyms, swimming, basketball, golf and martial arts, can be found on the Sports & Recreation page of the Discover the Sault website.
