This is a park that the locals certainly do not want you to know about. It is a trail to walk on along the river. Arrive early to park at the bottom.

This park has a nice view on the St-Lawrence River and the 2 bridges. Bring your chairs or use one of the many tables for a country-style picnic. Or bring a good book. There is nice pathways on both sides of this park

This is a must visit if you are in Canada before mid-October. SME of these mosaics are incredible and are one of the best free displays we have seen anywhere in the world. Make sure you leave yourself an hour to fully appreciate the display.
