Perfect spot for a long walk between lovers, family, friends or even alone! In the summer time, I like to come here for biking by renting a Bixi bike nearby. In the colder time of the year, long walks are great with the view of the canal, architectural landscapes from new condominium buildings around and of course, the Atwater market... More

Montrealer cyclists and trekkers like the rural feel of this pathway through history. Old canal-side buildings and factories add a poignancy to your walk.

Lachine canal is integral to the history of Montreal and should be seen for history buffs. It's a short walk from the Archaeology Museum. Green spaces are being developed along its banks and will be a more welcoming place once complete.

I really enjoyed my two times visiting Lachine Canal. The first was as part of a cycling tour through Ca Roule Montreal on a glorious sunny morning and the second time was by myself on foot on an overcast morning after visiting Atwater Market. I walked from Atwater Market back to Old Montreal Port. The amount of bi-lingual information signage... More

It was after high season so most "things" were closed. But hte canal is a great place to visit. The display boards were sufficient, and it is a lovely part of the Island to explore on foot. I would recommend visitors to the canal to also visit the Lachine Museum and the Park des rapides accessible from the Canal at... More

There's nothing that can't beat a morning run on the Canal! You feel like you're not downtown anymore, it's really refreshing! Perfect to clear up my mind :)

We rented bikes near the port and rode for 4 hours on terrific, continuous, mostly flat bike lanes to the islands and along the canal to the Atwater outdoor market for lunch. Awesome!
