The small village of Waltham is located at the mouth of the Noire and Ottawa rivers. The majority of the residents are settled along the water or nearby in order to benefit from the peaceful setting that is a great place to live. The tightly knit community comes together to make its living environment vibrant. North of the municipality is a vast area of wilderness, where lakes and forests serve as a playground for outdoor activities.
- 1 bike path, Cycloparc PPJ, that runs through the village
- 361 km2 (area of this huge part of the Pontiac region)
- 1 restaurant in a former train station that has been restored (La Gare Waltham Station)
- The Noire River is a popular attraction for canoeists. Aventure Rivière Sauvage rents out canoes and offers shuttle services and camping equipment, if needed. It is a great way to discover the hidden gems of the Pontiac region.
- Artisan was formed when two women decided to join forces at one address to sell jewellery, knitted items, decorations, and works of art. It is the go-to local spot to buy handmade gifts.
- Aventure Totale, a family business, offers seasonal plants and flowers in greenhouses. We also have FryDaze, a chip and ice cream stand, where you can wash down your hamburger steak with a delicious chocolate milkshake.
- There are plenty of driven residents in Waltham. Thankfully, they have been generously involved in the Waltham Recreation Association, which organizes community-building activities and events.
