Blew my mind that this exists on the island of Montreal! Walk out and feel the fresh energy as you witness the Rapids set against the backdrop of the city. Bring your camera and hiking boots! Great stop for a picnic and lots of photos hoots.

Such a gorgeous place, end of Lac St-Louis, and St-Laurent river, the parc is a nature, wildlife and bird sanctuary, all kinds of birds, turtles and even foxes. Rapids where people Kayak, and boat. All this within 15 minutes from downtown. Makes me happy to live right in the middle of it.

Delightful park and setting in the LaSalle/Southwest part of Montreal. Lovely to walk around and for photo ops, and the river rapids are either invigorating or relaxing depending on your perspective. When you're here it also puts you right on the LaSalle hike and bike trail along the river...again, a non-urban oasis that makes a nice break from the urban... More
