Winding through Montréal’s southwest borough, near the Atwater Market, this site is a multi-faceted attraction. Formerly the entry point for the canal network linking the Atlantic Ocean to the continent's heart, the Lachine Canal's industrial legacy shows in restored red-brick factories.
The well-maintained path that runs along the canal offers one of the best spots in the city to walk, run or cycle. The canal itself is ideal for kayaking or navigating, while its scenic park is a popular place to relax.
A 14.5-kilometre route between the Old Port to Lac Saint-Louis, a lush park, a waterway punctuated with five locks, shorelines flanked by industrial remains, and a varied calendar of activities make this emblematic site a place to visit.
