Nature Park

Pointe-aux-Prairies

Pointe-aux-Prairies Nature Park is a thriving hub for ornithologists and nature lovers. Divided into four, this park is so vast that it takes in a large proportion of the easternmost part of the Island of Montréal, even connecting the Rivière des Prairies to the St. Lawrence River.

Visitors can discover this park in all seasons through its network of interpretation trails spanning several ecosystems, including forests and a series of marshes that are home to numerous bird species, among them the green heron and the great horned owl, known for its distinctive ear tufts. To make the trek even more instructive and enjoyable, nature guides offer a series of environmental awareness activities, and an interpretation pavilion educates visitors about marshland habitats.
