  • Very nice site historic with many explanations and very well run. Very pretty and well laid out on the Chambly basin. Many "green space and converted to a picnic with the family and even with animals on a leash."

  • Where: Fort Chambly What: A historical fort, similar to Old Fort Henry just smaller and cheaper. How was it: We stumbled upon this place after having breakfast at Dame Tartine. As we approached the water front, we got a closer look and noticed that we could enter for a very reasonable price. We spent roughly $12 between the two of us. It doesn't look big from the outside but once you're in, it's quite surprising. It's a good place to go with kids and there's some interaction as you walk through. There is also a timed information session with a guide that we were fortunate to assist. Grade: Eli = 4, Serge = 4+ Recommend: Yes, it's very affordable and a nice place to visit if you are in the area.
  • A national park with plenty of space to picnic. You can visit the inside It will take you 2-3 hours to visit depending in your interest in reading signs. Guided tour is offered and pricing is fair. I really like the fact they now offer a kind of treasure hunt for kids a fun way to visit with younger crowd.
  • Nice slice of Québec history. Here is held the biggest beer festival of the province. Right by the water, it is a beautiful place to visit and have a picnic in the parc!
  • Beautifull area where you can walk, bike, inline skate... A lot of green area. Lack of picnik table but plenty of space to put a blanket.
  • Super chill park by the water. Great for taking walks. Watch out for the Beerfest in September every year.
