Some people say Darwin, others Dorwin name. Dorwin seems right since it perpetuates the memory of Judehia Hobebel Dorwin former owner of the land and lumber yard. Mrs. James Ross gave the land to the municipality in 1944 and later it was granted officially to the Minister of Tourism. On may 16th, 1967, it became a recreational park.

Dorwin Waterfalls are one of Quebec’s most spectacular sites! Thousands of nature lovers come each year to admire the magnificent 60 feet falls. In spite of the beauty of the site, it still can be very dangerous near the river; humid and slippery rocks, sly and fast currents, dangerous and unstable cliffs and steep slopes.
