    So special! A significant piece of history! We nearly forgot to check this out but were so glad we remembered to turn back on our way out of town. It is so touching the way the town rallied volunteers to rebuild this beautiful old bridge when it was destroyed by a fire set by an arsonist many years ago.

    Je suis allé un dimanche, le matin pour 11h, en fin de septembre. Bon accueil à la réception et au quai d'embarquement pour recevoir la planche à pagaie. Beau site et bien entretenu. Les eaux étaient pratiquement vide, donc c'était super d'avoir la place quasi tout seul.

    Un petit peu de débris de branches dans certain endroits mais pas de trouble à naviguer le parcours selon la carte fournie. Environ 3.5kms parcouru. C'est plus une sortie calme et à rythme lent, mais le paysage est très beau et bonnes occasions photos. Facile de tout couvrir en 1 heure, mais prendre son temps et admirer l'entourage, 1h30-1h45 qui vaut plus la valeur du billet d'accès.

    Went around 11am, early fall, end of September. Well greated at the check in post and at the paddleboard pick up. Clean and well maintained facilities where I made use of. Place was pretty much empty which made for a calme, easy to navigate paddle with no one in the way. Nice to have the place almost to ourselves.

    There was a bit of branch debris in some parts that could be cleaned up, but it was easy enough to paddle through. We followed the circuit map provided and did a bit of exploring as well. About 3.5 kms. This is more like a slow, leisurely paddle, especially if it's crowded. You can cover the area in about 1 hour if you have a steady pace and don't take photos. 1h30-1h45 if you take your time and take in the surroundings. Which gives you better value for money if you take up as much of the allocated time.

    Nice chalet with OK to good fast food. Great number of runs of all difficulties.
    Staff seems to know what they are doing and my family felt safe during the experience.
    A little bit of a drive and one of the sinks was broken but the rest as reasonably clean.
    Great great runs and good snow.

    Fairbairn House offers a hands on look at the local history of the Wakefield/Chelsea area developed along the shores of the Gatineau River. This historic house and grounds are managed by local history buffs who have devoted their time and energy to this vibrant display of days gone by. Old tools, barn, school house, gardens are all representative of the life and times of the early settlers to this region. Musical Mondays offer free entertainment in the outdoor amphitheater and there are hands on activities for children every Monday, Wednesday and Friday during the day. Bring along a picnic, take a walk in the pines along side the gurgling stream and enjoy the natural beauty of this educational, entertaining and engaging attraction.

    This is a ski resort that is perfect for families with small kids. It is also located directly in the village of Wakefield. So, perfect for an after ski at one of the restau or at a pub.

    I visited the Theatre Wakefield, presents Comedy: Then & Now, for the Sunday Matinee.. I wanted to see my Nephew Jeffrey who is one of the lead roles in "Love Potion" one of two short plays. Both fun, lively & entertaining. Live theatre is always great.. & the Wakefield Theatre group contributes a wide spectrum of excellence to the community.. The show goes on next November 30th & December 1st, 7 pm.. try to see it as you won't be disappointed..

    The course is okay. It is in good shape. The area is scenic, but to my way of thinking, the course didn't take into account the topography of the area. It is an easy course to play for those who are not golf experts. It is preferred if you don't want a physically challenging course like the neighboring ones.

    We took our group of daughters on a trail ride. Although I did not ride the girls and my sister-in-law all said it was absolutely beautiful. The surrounding were gorgeous - in fact I had one of the most peaceful naps with the windows open and the breeze blowing in while they were riding. The only thing I could recommend improving on is the friendliness and patience of the young female staff. A couple of them were great but I watched the lesson portion and a couple were less than patient with new or inexperienced riders. Also the young woman who was at reception could use a tune up in the customer service department.
