The Parc Carillon is located behind the St-Pierre Recreational Centre. Centrally located, it is a public space for use by all residents and visitors. The Frog Follies National Frog Jumping Competition and Ag Fair are held in this park every year as well as many other community and family get-togethers.
In order to make the best use of the space for all ages, the Parc Carillon Committee Inc. (consisting of Village councillors and members of the community) contracted the services of a landscape architect to create a plan for the park's development. Click here to view the master plan.
Every year, a part of this plan is completed:
- Skateboard park
- Playground equipment
- Baseball diamond
- Climbing net
- Canteen: repainted, folding wall, showers
- RV parking area with bbq pits (more info below)
- Soccer field
- Upgrade to Crow Wing Trail/Trans Canada Trail
- Pedestrian bridge over proposed Frog Pond
- Disc golf course
- Skating rink
- Outdoor Fitness Equipment for 13 and over
- Under Development:
- Fundraising is under way to cover the costs of a splash pad to be installed next to the pump house. What a great way to celebrate Canada's 150th in 2017!
- A partnership with Seine Rat River Conservation District will see the frog pond being developed in 2016. A great way to use the drainage area for the park property and to learn all about the role of wetlands in our environment.

Please note: the winter slide has been moved to the Parc Jolys, on the west bank of the Joubert Creek. A snow hill is constructed during the winter for those who enjoy sliding.
Did you Know?
The Parc Carillon got its name from the Knights of Columbus - Carillon Council - St-Pierre-Jolys. Carillon is the name of a formal electoral provincial district from 1886 to 1969, predominantly francophone. The Parc Carillon property belonged to Grand Knight Mr. Gerry Roy, who provided it to the community so all residents could benefit from it.
