  • Nice piece of history in a beautiful park. The structure itself I can give it 3 stars but I can't blame people who didn't have the technology for more. Cool thing to see, I recommend it, The surrounding of the fort is excellent.
  • Beautiful old fort defending the river against the Americans. The park is nice and there are historical re-enactments in the summer. This is a great place to bike to from Montreal (far) in the summertime.
  • Really nice historical place with a huge parc for everyone to enjoy, lots of event are held here!
  • Very beautiful place for a picnic. The sunset is lovely.
  • 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.
