Thunder Bay features beautiful parks, campgrounds and conservation areas for residents and visitors to enjoy.


There are 129 city parks and more than 55 kilometres of paved recreational trails. Many of our parks are large and offer opportunities for fun and relaxation. City neighbourhoods feature smaller parks and greenspaces, most with playground equipment.


The City of Thunder Bay owns and maintains two Municipal campgrounds.
