Quality of Life

The City of Quinte West offers both residents and visitors well rounded options of events and activities in all four seasons.

Maintaining an active lifestyle is easy through its several recreation facilities such as Quinte West YMCA, Batawa Ski Hill, private recreational services and sports organizations throughout the City.

Quinte West boasts over 85 km of trails and over 3300 acres of conservation areas and parks between the City and the two Conservation Authorities that operate within it. Hiking and cycling opportunities continue to grow as the city implements its recent active transportation plan. With three ice pads, two splash pads, two skateboard parks, a pump track and a dino dig, there are plenty of activities for everyone to enjoy as well as nine golf courses to cover any skill level of golfer.

The City’s two downtown cores provide an eclectic mix of shopping options while the restaurants and coffee shops in the city offer a variety of options to suit any palate. A vibrant and robust events calendar rounds out the offerings in Quinte West making it a great place to visit or call home.
