ABOUT LAMBTON SHORES

The Municipality of Lambton Shores is comprised of expansive golden beaches, popular campgrounds, parks, cycling, hiking and cross-country ski trails, indoor and outdoor theatres, rural farms, and marketplaces. Historic towns and villages area shopper’s delight, while naturalists enjoy the area for the abundance of wildlife, birds and butterflies found in the Pinery Provincial Park, at the Lambton Heritage Museum, Port Franks Wetlands and Forested Dunes and along the many nature trails. The Lambton Heritage Museum, Arkona Lions, and Forest-Lambton Museum tell the stories of our past.

COMMUNITIES IN BLOOM IN LAMBTON SHORES
Our community’s pride has been elevated with the participation in the Communities in Bloom program. Lambton Shores' council, staff and residents take great pride in the fact that we were National winners in the 2012 competition, the winner of the Class of Champions competition in 2013 and most recently, International Champions in 2016 - a direct result of everyone working together towards a common goal. This is apparent in the gardens that are planted, the community events that are organized, the historical preservation taking place, environmental awareness applied to our lives and the maintenance practices used within our organization.

ABOUT COMMUNITIES IN BLOOM ONTARIO
