Chutes Provincial Park, Massey
The only provincial park on Highway 17 between Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie, Chutes is an excellent stopover for travellers and a base to explore the North Channel of Lake Huron. Situated on the Aux Sables River, the park gets its name from a chute that once diverted logs around the waterfall. Follow riverside nature trails to see rapids upstream.
NOTE: Chutes Provincial Park is NOT maintained nor owned by the Township of Sables-Spanish Rivers.

Sables River Mouth Park, Massey
This Public Park, at the end of Carl Albert Street, is known as "The Mouth" as it is where the Sables River empties into the Spanish River. The Park features a beautiful natural sand beach, natural clay embankment slide, shoreline fishing and great picnic areas for the family.
Heritage Park is located at the Highway 17 traffic lights in Massey. There are washroom facilities, maps of the Township, benches and picnic tables for residents and visitors to enjoy.
Stop by for a picnic and tour the town!
Note: Washroom facilities open from May long weekend to Thanksgiving Weekend in October.
In 1979, the Teasdale family donated 129 acres of land north and south of Reserve Road to the municipality with the hopes that it would remain in its natural state, as a place for residents and visitors to enjoy. An Ad Hoc Committee is being formed to develop a hiking/snowshoeing/skiing trail system in the Kenneth Teasdale Park.
