I liked the children's theatre and playground, but our animal-loving 7-year-old found some of the other activities a little disappointing - the petting zoo had only goats and pot-bellied pigs, and the "farm" took about 30 seconds to visit.

We went for the 1st time and we liked it a lot. The parks for the kids are great and the animals seem in good condition. We didn't know what to expect and we're going back for a picnic next time. The park was very clean also

I enjoyed it a lot. But you have to be a nature lover to enjoy this place. I suggest you go for a picnic with family or friends it can be great

Lots to do and see and you can spend a full day. There is a small farm for the kids to see as well as a section that is like a "mini city" There are many various types of flowers to see for the nature lovers.

A nice place for a walk, nice trails and a nice place for a picnic in the summer. Its a park with a small farm and animals, a small lake with fish but no fishing aloud.

The Centre de la Nature is free to Laval residents with their " Carte Avantage," and a small fee for others. (They have 2 parking lots). If you are lucky, you can find a place to park on a side street and simply walk in. During the summer, you can stroll the vast area, picnic, rent a kayak on their... More
