“Birdwatchers (Twitchers) take note!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

As other reviews have noted, this is a great place to see bird activity, especially in the morning and evening. Try to get there with a bicycle, as you will see much more than on foot, given the same amount of time. Lots of fresh air. Really relaxing.

“Acien ruines d'un Moulin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Lieu historic très beau...A true historical gem! Located along the rivière des Prairies, at the very heart of the history of Sault-au-Récollet, this park abounds in historical elements, such as the site des Moulins ruins, the maison du Pressoir and the maison du Meunier.

“Birdwatching, rapids, cute old neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2009

We went there on a very hot summer day to cool down. We walked the mile or so from Bourassa subway station to the island between Gouin bd old buildings and the parks along the river, and that was quite pleasant inspite of the heat. Unfortunately the oldest church in Montreal, Eglise de la Visitation with its 17th century interior decoration, was closed. But we saw plenty of birds, and had a nice dinner by the rapids in the Bistro du Moulin.
