I went to the park with my family and it was perfect. My two kids, 3 and 4, loved the play area, walking in the forest and across the marshes, feed animals and to ride a small train. The park is very clean and the staff are nice. For pic-nice, the place is ideal. We will return for sure.

It was a very beautiful place to walk with the kids. The kids were able to feed some of the animals, do a pony ride, which I found was a bit short but they enjoyed it nonetheless. They have a very well build and clean amusement park with slides for different levels, a huge spider webs. It's fairly big for... More

My husband and I had so much fun taking a romantic stroll at Le centre de la nature de Laval. The gardens are beautiful, the trail is easy to walk on and it offers a lot of small, fun, family friendly activities. It was our first time and we happened to go on an unbearably hot summer day, therefore our... More

We were at Centre de la Nature with my mother and my 2-year-old toddler. There was a lot to do: a samll farm, a park, a train going through the Centre. There were beautiful gardens, a small pond, but the water was disgusting. There is also a cafeteria, but we didn't try it.
