The bike paths are amazing - you get a great workout going up Pink Lake on both the road and the bike path! And we say an owl, a deer, and a coyote!

A great ecosystem with trails for a hike in summer and snowshoes in winter and lakes to swim. Don't use solar cream and then go to the water. Please think before you act and keep the place clean!

Beautiful bike paths, paths you can also walk and very nice view when you arrive at the Belvedere. Because some paths are flat, you can brings your kids along. There are also some places you can swim. Enjoy free parking at the visitor center.

I've been going to Gatineau park for decades, and I still enjoy it. It's unspoiled beauty, great water quality and a wonderful solution to that need to reconnect with nature.

Fantastic place to escape the city, 15mins from Gatineau/Ottawa. Free parking at Visitor Centre (Scott Road) with picnik tables, and very nice walking trails.

Thank Sue A

It seems like there is no really good way to get right into the park by bus (except during the fall foliage season, when some special shuttles may be running). If you do a search on "STO Plani Bus", go to the STO web site... More

All the roads, parking lots, etc remain open. In fact I've often seen hikers on the trails after 5:00pm. So, I don't think this is a problem.
