Our Responsibility

Spruce Falls is the name originally used for this site many years ago. The name is currently also used for a waterfall that is found downstream, about 5 km north of Kapuskasing. That second falls is also called Sturgeon Falls, and I've used that second name for the other falls to reduce confusion. If you are local and can correct or confirm this, please let me know.

There are two waterfall-related features at this site. The first is low, wide rock rapids that is set under a road bridge. This feature is found at the southwest corner of Kakpuskasing Riverside Park. I'm not sure how close you can get to it.

The second feature is a dam, further to the west, and further from the park. It is clearly seen across the bay, but at a distance of about 200 m. It is situated next to the town's water filtration plant, but I'm not sure that the two features are related. Can you help?

Views of both falls are avilable from Kapuskasing Riverside Park. This urban park wraps around a bay in the river and offers a place to stretch in the town. I couldn't figure out where parking is avilable, so I the driving directions lead you to on-street parking on Lang Ave.
