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.

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

Take a walk, look at flowers, go for a picnic, go canoeing, or simply sit down and read, this place is a very nice spot to be away from the city and its speedy way of life.

Centre de la nature is a great park for an afternoon with the family. It has a pond with ice skating in winter, amusement park (swings, slides, etc etc) for kids, a petting farm and a botanical farm. Plus it is free to access
