  • It's always a winning outing! Landscaping for drag is well-maintained and we spend a very good time with family. Free parking for residents of Laval who have a card advantage.

  • A very wooded centre where you can stroll in nature trails. There are games for children, homestead. Everything is free. Except maybe the parking. In winter there is a rink with fires to rest.

  • The most popular park in Laval. With multiple activities ranging from canoeing in the summer to ice skating in the winter, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Birders will enjoy the vast amount of bird species that call this place home. A small "farm" is available for the public to visit which contains all the classic farm animals. If animals aren't your thing, botany is also a prominent aspect in this park with beautiful arrangements of flowers and trees every summer with greenhouses housing more plants to compliment this.
  • Great Park, the farm is a big hit. IT is for free and the kids can see cows, pigs, chicken, peacocks and a greenhouse with birds, fish and frogs. Kids can also enjoy a pony ride(fee applies). There is occasionally mini train rides during weekends and vacation.(fee applies). The lake offers canoeing and pedal boats (rental fee applies). In winter the slides are a big hit. Ice skating is possible as well. The park is big and spacious. You can have nice walks.
  • Great place for walks and photography. The gardens are really beautiful in summer. Way too many people on the weekend.
  • Very nice nature park in the middle of the city. The kids had a blast snow tuning
  • Want a nice place. Playing hockey on the frozen lake in a beautiful wires day. He shoot and he score
