Nature Park

Bois-de-l'Île-Bizard

This nature park is the ideal destination to observe fauna and flora in an urban environment. The star-shaped lake extends its arms into diverse ecosystems waiting to be discovered. The park is home to a variety of natural environments, including marshes, wetlands, maple and cedar forests, as well as a lookout over Lake of Two Mountains—all of which can be explored a during a single visit.

From the winding footbridge spanning the great marsh, visitors can see frogs, turtles, ducks, muskrats and, if they’re lucky, beavers.
