Parc-nature de
l’Anse-à-l’Orme

Located in the westernmost part of the island of Montréal, this 233-hectare linear park is partially finished. Only the northwest portion of the park, which opens onto the Lac des Deux Montagnes, is currently open to the public. This idyllic spot offers a magnificent view of the lake and the Oka area.

In the wintertime, the winds that blow regularly over this icy expanse of water make it a popular destination with kite skiiers and paraskiiers.
