This park offers green spaces, channels teeming with life and waterside trails. Walkers, cyclists and canoers come here for a breath of fresh air and a break from city noise. Others enjoy a trip back in time to discover some of the First Nations that spent time on the park’s islands. In the winter, Île Sainte-Marguerite offers skiers and snowshoers a paradise of snowy landscapes. The peaceful atmosphere is conducive to spotting animals and signs of their presence. Park of recreation with a surface of 8.14 km². The cool calm of their country charm stands in stark contrast to the high-rises of the towering city.
