Recreation Areas & Visitor Centres
Visiting our recreation sites
We've developed and maintain a wide range of recreation areas as one part of our efforts to balance the province's energy needs with the preservation of the natural environment.
See the chart below for information on our recreation sites – such as Hayward Lake – and our visitor centres and the activities and features of each. We've also included driving directions and site-specific information to help when planning your visit.
Remember that these areas are located at or near working dams and power stations that contain both natural and man-made hazards. Please play safe and adhere to all posted signs and warnings.
