When it comes to education, parents may find it challenging for their children to access high schools and primary schools as pedestrians. At the secondary level, there are both public and private schools. Moreover, daycares are not numerous and thus tend to require a very long walk to get to.

Character

The noise levels in Shawinigan are reasonably low, as the streets are calm - although that is not the case near one of the railway lines or Autoroute de l'Énergie. Parks are sparse, which makes it occasionally hard to get to them. Despite that, there are over 100 public green spaces close by for residents to enjoy, such as Parc de la Rivière-Grand-Mère and Parc multisport Réal-Dufresne.
