For many townspeople, the most compelling reason that they enjoy living in North Yarmouth is the recreation – for young and old – that abounds here.
For some, we have trails available for walking, for hiking, for exploring nature, for bird watching. For others, it is the river that means lazy – or strenuous – afternoons in a kayak or canoe – with or without fishing. The town has two public access points to the Royal River.
For still others, the ball fields provide the opportunities to watch their kids play sports.
Year-round, we have runners and bikers sharing the roads. So do horses.
Want to cross-country ski? No problem. Go to Skyline. You can see and even ride in the old-fashioned sleighs there!
Now, the Knights Pond area provides a scenic venue for activities winter and summer – including ice-skating!
Hunting is permitted in most areas of town.
Ride snowmobiles? Like snowshoes? We have trails for those activities, too.
Toddy Brook, our 18-hole golf course, attracts golfers from all over southern Maine.
Each summer, the Events Committee sponsors a family triathlon that gives athletes – younger and older – a chance to prove their mettle.
Does the annual winter cribbage tournament count?
North Yarmouth is a town that values and supports all recreational activities.
Come join the fun!
