Much better than Montreal botanical gardens

Huge and beautiful garden with mini zoo. Much better than Montreal botanical gardens and it's free. There are boats and kayaks available for rent. Recommend.

There is a nice park with an artificial lake. You can rent a variety of kayak, canoe, rabaska, pedalo for a price, $4 and up for 25min. There is also a very long cycling path. Parking is not free unless you live in Laval and have their advantage card. Lots to do, skate park, gardens, animal farm, pony rides etc...... More

It's just a big park. Parking is not free. There are lots of small animals for kids. But for adults, it's a good place for jogging and morning exercise. Nothing more...
