Nature Park


This century-old woodland features a diversified ecosystem where wildflowers carpet the forest floor in spring and where the stream teems with a rich aquatic fauna, the birds sing undisturbed, and from afar the odd red fox can be seen passing through. This park is also the ideal place to meet naturalists, explore grass beds and observe the Rivière des Prairies.

On a peaceful winter day, skiers and showshoers cross these varied ecosystems, sometimes ending their treks at one of the park’s two chalets, where they can warm up beside a crackling fireplace.
