Parc-nature du
Bois-de-Liesse

This century-old forest of black maples is home to a diversified ecosystem. Visitors can see several species of plants and animals. Wildflowers carpet the forest floor in spring, the Bertrand stream teems with a rich aquatic fauna and birds sing undisturbed.

This park is also the ideal place to meet naturalists, explore grass beds and observe the Rivière des Prairies.
