White River We invite you to make this your new home

Playing

White River has year-round sport, recreation and leisure:

White River Community Centre

White River Community Centre is a busy place, housing 3 sheets of ice and offering a variety of activities from hockey to curling and figure skating. There is also a full fitness centre, a baseball field, and a food and beverage facility.

Hunting and Fishing

The local wildlife includes small game, deer, moose and black bears, providing hunters with nearly year-round access to wild game. We attract a large number of moose hunters every fall. A complex watershed makes the Township a wonderful spot for inland fishing. Fishermen will not be disappointed with the opportunities to reel in a Walleye, Bass, Pike or Lake Trout. Our fresh water lakes and rivers are full of fish.

Summer Recreation

Within the Township there are endless opportunities for outdoor fun in the summer. We’ve got wilderness activities like hiking trails that loop through our forests and around our lakes and rivers, swimming, and canoeing to motorized boating activities.

Various community events are also hosted every year like the Canada Day Celebration and Winnie's Hometown Festival that takes place annually on the 3rd weekend in August. A statue, based on the Disney Winnie-the-Pooh character, stands in the Park where the Visitor Centre is located and can be viewed from Highway 17.

Winter Recreation

White River is a great place to find some of the best snowmobiling in North America. There are well-used trails that accommodate ATVs throughout the summer months and snowmobiles all winter long. Winter hiking, ice-fishing, snowshoeing, skating, organized hockey, curling league, pond-hockey and cross-country skiing are the favourite pastimes of local residents.
