Smiths Falls Senior

Smith Falls, Ontario

(La version française suivra) Smiths Falls beaches (Senior and Junior) are situated behind a residential area of the city. There are no lifeguards on the sites so you must proceed at your own risk. There is a deposit of sand facing the Mississippi river. A floating dock is available and a cornered off swim zone makes for a great little swim. There are grassy patches that are well maintained for picnics and ball games. A little bridge allows you to get to a small island within this narrow stretch of the river. You can park your car in the parking spots that are available at the end of Park Ave. There are unfortunately no facilities and you must come prepared.

Les plages Junior et Senior de Smith Falls donnent sur la rivière Mississippi derrière un quartier résidentiel. Il n'y a pas de sauveteurs sur les lieux alors procèdez à vos propres risques. Il y a un dépôt de sable longeant la rivière et un quai flottant pour s'amuser. On observe aussi des beaux coins de gazon pour des picnics et des jeux. Un petit pont fait le lien entre une petite île au milieu de la rivière et la terre ferme. Stationnez votre voiture dans le stationnement qui se trouve à la fin de la rue Park Ave. Malheureusement, il n'y a pas d'installation de service.
