Parc des Rapides

Parks, gardens and zoos
Pôle des Rapides

The ideal spot for an up-close view of the spectacular Lachine Rapids that first fascinated Jacques Cartier in 1535. A landscaped lookout has explanatory panels telling the story of the rapids and the former hydroelectric station. The park is also known as a refuge for migrating birds, sheltering over 225 species, including the largest heron colony in Québec. The rapids live up to the wildest expectations of white-water rafters and kayakers.
