Les Quartiers du Canal - Petite-Bourgogne

Ranked among the most beautiful urban circuits in the world, the Lachine Canal’s path was opened in 1977, making it one of the oldest in the Montréal area. It is also one of the most popular because of its superb green spaces. Located in the heart of the bicycle network in the Sud-Ouest borough of the island of Montréal, it follows the canal for 14.5 km, from the Bonaventure Expressway west of the Old Port to Chemin du Musée in Lachine. Experienced cyclists can travel from one end of the path to another in approximately one hour.

The path is maintained from April 15 to November 15 and the park is open year round from dawn to 11:00 p.m.
