Recreation

Municipal Parks

Enniskillen has three recreational parks, each with a baseball diamond,  picnic pavilion and public washrooms.   Playground equipment are available at each of the parks. The Township purchased the land for the 6th Line ball park now known as Krall Park in 1953.  Gorman Park was purchased in 1983 and Marthaville Park in 1988, which officially opened in 1991.  Since 1958, the Enniskillen Parks & Recreation Committee has organized an active minor fastball program for the area young people. A number of Enniskillen teams have achieved distinction in the Ontario Rural Softball Association competitions.  In recent years, the Committee has held the annual Canada Day Chicken Barbeque event.

For winter recreation programs, area young people are actively involved with minor hockey and figure skating available at the nearby Petrolia Arena.  Past and present residents have achieved fame in the National Hockey League, include the Hunter brothers (Dave, Dale & Mark), Bobby Gould and Brian Dobbin.

To book an event, please contact the municipal office (519)882-2490.
