Timmins kayaking

Travel Planner











Please click on the photo ABOVE, the identified public parking lots for the 2019 event.

Access to the parking lots from Riverside is restricted to ONLY the exhibitors displaying the 2019 Kayak event parking pass and those with accessible needs. Customers attending the Farmer’s Market are asked to please make use of the public parking as identified.

Public parking is available at the Park Avenue entrance to the park, as well as across the highway adjacent to the Game On Ball Hockey site. There is safe pedestrian passage underneath the bridge to avoid traffic incidents.

Everyone is asked to please respect your Parking Volunteers as your safety is their priority.

The First Student Shuttle pick up and drop off will be at the path entrance to the park located on Craig Street.

City transit stops are also identified on the photo below.

A reminder that the roads will be closed one hour prior to the fireworks display Saturday night and will reopen once the foot traffic has dispersed. Again, this is for everyone’s safety.

We would like to thank our local hoteliers that support the Great Canadian Kayak Challenge & Festival.  Their continued support of this event is very much appreciated!





Often the best memories of a trip are the foods and restaurants discovered along the day. In Timmins, visitors will find a wide variety of options when deciding what to eat.
