Parc-nature
du 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. Marshes, wetlands, a lookout over Lake of Two Mountains and maple and cedar forests can all be explored during a single visit.

Enjoy cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in peace and quiet, away from the noise of the city.

* Please note that the large and medium footbridges are not accessible. A new lookout is also being built. It will replace the old Pointe-aux-Carrières lookout, which was removed due to major damages in the past.

The visitor centre is closed this winter. Washrooms are accessible from Friday to Sunday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
