Went at the Ile de la Visitation Nature Park for a short bike ride. The cycling path is nice. It was not too crowded. However, it is not as quiet and enjoyable as Ile Bizard or Bois de Liesse.

Wonderful place all year long, free and plenty of things to do, the waterfall is soothing and in summer, don't forget to bring your barbecue and your frisbee :)

The best way to enjoy this park is walking. Do come in the week days, the weekends are crowded. In winter Cross Country Skiing is available for FREE. Just a Wonderful place. I LOVE THIS PLACE.
