Parks & Recreation

Outdoor enthusiasts have everything they could hope for in Mattice – Val Côté. In addition to fishing, hunting, or riding an ATV, bike or snowmobile, they can also hop in a canoe or kayak*, go camping, or enjoy one of our several parks to have a picnic, get the kids to play, or simply meet with friends. Others will prefer to play in the ballpark, skate or play hockey in the arena** during the winter, or to play badminton during the summer.

*The Municipality has kayaks and related equipment for rental. For more information, click on the following links.

** The ice rink at the sports complex has been closed since March 2020. Its future is uncertain at this time.
