When it comes to recreation, Wakefield is a busy place all four seasons of the year. No matter what your interests, you'll find something to keep you coming back to the area. The village is surrounded by the rolling Gatineau Hills, ideal for exploring on foot, bike, horseback, or dogsled. The Gatineau River, running alongside Wakefield's main street, is a swimmer and paddler's paradise. Massive Gatineau Park sits on the western edge of the village, boasting hundreds of kilometres of wilderness trails for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking and biking; beautiful beaches for swimming; and campgrounds, cabins and yurts for longer stays in all seasons. For golfers and alpine skiers, there are several great options within a few minutes' drive. Need to relax after a long day of exercise? Try one of the many yoga classes in Wakefield or just sit back and watch the sun go down over the hills.
