The parks within North Bay include Thomson Park, Lee Park, Champlain Park, Amelia Park, Armstrong Park, Memorial Park and our newly constructed Steve Omischl Sports Fields Complex. As well, the North Bay Waterfront is a great place to walk, jog, bike or rollerblade. It is close to the downtown, and provides marina facilities, boat launching, access to North Bay's trails by way of the Kate Pace Way, playgrounds, beach areas, picnic areas and a bandshell, all along a landscaped stretch of Lake Nipissing.

The City has 73 park areas including playgrounds and picnic shelters that provide places for people to relax, picnic, play, walk, blade or swim. While these parks are available to the community, organized activities must have a permit to use the park areas. Playground areas should be used safely and under the guidance of adult supervision.

In 2008 the Parks and Recreation Department updated its Parks Plan through a detailed review and consultation process. In keeping with this plan and ongoing consultation with neighbourhoods and community partners, the City continues to invest in parks through the development of new park areas and improvement of current park facilities.
