  • Great place to go for a walk, but I would suggest to wait a few more weeks since all the paths are very wet and muddy because of the snow that melted. You can always find free parking during weekends ...  more »

  • Great nature retreat in the center of a bustling city. Secluded away from the city noise , Wanna have a day or a evening away from stress, visit this place. Fishing , dam, cycling trail, scenic. Love it. Been here a million times and never got frustrated. Will visit again.
  • Very nice park. It is more nature/forest like. All in all it is a very nice place to have a hike or ride your bike or have a barbecue.
  • Great place to hike, bike, picnic and spend the day relaxing. The place is not far from montreal or Laval. One of my favorites parks in Montreal.
  • It's so close to the city, just a bus ride away but it feels that you are lost in the country by the river side. Perfect for walks and picnics
  • Beautiful park along the Montreal back river. Unfortunately it's a litter bin and as the milder temperatures kick in its a haven for drugs and prostitution. Bodies are regularly recovered from the park.
