For nature lovers, bicycling, walking the trails, bicycling or driving to the different look-outs to admire the laurentian mountain and the gatineau and ottawa valley. Fall is the best to admire the different colors in the trees

I cycle in the Gatineau Park at least once a week. One of the world's gems. Beautiful vistas and the park is closed to traffic on Sunday mornings.

Driving around you saw many different views, forests, lakes and interesting homes and towns. The walking was easy as were the roads. Fall colours were gorgeous.

The only federal park that isn't a national park, Gatineau Park is a beautiful gem tarnished by the mismanagement and incompetence of the National Capital Commission (NCC) and by the greed of its residents. Residential and road construction and lack of a coherent land management policy are continuing to destroy the park. Since 1992, 127 new houses have been built... More

I'm from Gatineau and I go to the park at less once every week, if I could I would go more often. It's very peaceful, I love walking in the path or biking. The view is just incredible specially at night with all the lights of the city. You're also very close to many different great restaurant.

The Park is just a short drive from the city. The weather was perfect during our visit. An excellent place to view fall foliage. You could easily spend half a day in the park.
