This area along the Lachine Canal has been developed into bike and walking paths and lots of places for picnics, even boat rentals. The market in the picture is full of interesting meat shops, fresh fruit and vegetables and tons of flowers.

What struck me about Montreal was all the people exercising, be it biking, running, rowing, etc. Having explored the city, I understand why -- there are plenty of places to exercise and the Lachine Canal is one of the best. We stayed at a hotel...More

The boaters (both motorized and paddled), and surfers all enjoy Lachine Canal. The rapids were a highlight from the shore, especially watching kayakers and surfers riding the waves.

My husband & I biked & walked parts of the Lachine Canal this summer and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience! The bike paths in Montreal are unparalleled and The Lachine Canal path was a fabulous day!

An idyllic trail meandering along the Lachine Canal. Close to the city yet far removed from it. Two spots to recommend. The end of the trip relaxing at a waterside park in Lachine. The other is Montreal's iconic Atwater market, an emporium of fresh produce,...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young

The bycicle path is closed to pedestrians and bikes from ville emard for 2-3 kms what do you do to pass it ? This will be for 2-3 years. St Patrick Street is under construction and you can't risk biking in the street, what do you suggest?
