Nature Park


An enchanting site surrounded by shoreline, this peninsula offers commanding views of the Rivière des Prairies and Lake of Two Mountains, and it features a natural sand beach popular with families.

Located on what was once private agricultural land, Montréal’s largest nature park today houses an organic vegetable farm where animals are also raised. During winter, the park offers kilometres of nature trails for hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. In spring, a traditional sugarhouse gives visitors a chance to savour various maple products.
