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

With it's farm animals, wooded area, it's hard to think you're 10 minutes away from Montréal. An artificial pond where you can rent a kayak or canoe. Great place for a picnic.

Great place to visit, take a walk and enjoy the surroundings. What a fantastic way to recycle and refurbish an old quarry. It is a focal point of Laval summer through winter. A wonderful one-day outing for those who appreciate the outdoors.

My wife and I live in Laval, and we like to go there in the winter to skate (not too much wind) or toboggan with our granson, or again in the summer to wander around and enjoy the walk around the pond with the lovely flowers.
