Take your pick: adrenaline packed or slow and contemplative?
Martinville residents celebrated their centennial in 1996 with the inauguration of Parc du Vieux-Moulin. Located close to the dam that once powered the flour mill and sawmill, the park commemorates the town’s founding pioneer, a Loyalist named Martin. The landscape features a man-made pond that welcomes several bird species, including Canada geese and snow geese, every autumn. Economically, the population benefits from the area’s natural resources (gravel pits, woods, fir stands), operates dairy, pork, beef, sheep, and goat farms, or works in a metalwork factory and a machine shop.
