Recreation in Lambton

This trail links cyclists to the Martin Goodman Trail on the Toronto Waterfront.
Smythe Park located off Scarlett Road is designated as a wildlife protection area.

Smythe Park also has plenty of recreation with two outdoor swimming pools, two tennis courts, two baseball diamonds and a modern children's playground.
