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.

They love to take the poney rides and they also like to have a tour in the mini train. Other then that we enjoy having our picnic and watching the ducks and... More

I attended the Annual Islamic Festival. There were many merchants with ethnic merchandise and delicious food. I especially enjoyed relaxing by the lake and having a coffee while watching people go on... More
