Welcome to the birthplace of oil in North America! This township’s rich history began in the 1830’s when it was named after the Earl of Enniskillen in Ireland by the Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada, Sir John Colbourne. There are two residential hamlets within the township, Oil City and Marthaville. Come visit Enniskillen and the oil fields that continue to produce “black gold” for the important petro-chemical industry of Lambton County.
Enniskillen is home to three recreational parks, each with a baseball diamond, picnic pavilion and public washrooms. Playground equipment is available at each of the parks. On Canada Day you can enjoy a chicken barbeque hosted by the Enniskillen Parks & Recreation Committee. In September, the Petrolia & Enniskillen Agricultural Society hosts a popular fall fair. Don’t miss out on the demolition derby, baked goods, youth dance, cash draw, and much more!
Operated by the St. Clair Conservation Authority, the 330 acre Lorne C. Conservation Area offers the outdoor enthusiast many exciting opportunities. The park includes a nature interpretative centre and an in-ground swimming pool. Scenic campsites serviced with hydro and water are also available for those who enjoy camping.
