Parc-nature du
Bois-de-Saraguay

This nature park is unique for its intriguing blend of natural and cultural elements. A witness to several key moments in Montréal’s history, its unique landscape reveals a succession of land uses: an ancient riparian forest, the clearing of woodland for farming and the development of forested estates by upper middle-class English-speaking families, including the McEachrans, Ogilvies, Gaults, Patons, MacDougalls, Refords and Molsons).


In the wintertime, the 1.8-km hiking trail offers nature lovers an especially peaceful setting.
