I was very impressed with le centre de la nature. Many people had recommended it to me and I was not disappointed. Large area with lots to do with children, animals, a lake, beautiful scenery. In late May they fill up their lake with fish and offer free fishing to children. My kids and I had a wonderful time!

Love this place, great place to take out of towners or just to relax by yourself. I go about once a month. Be sure to visit the animal farms. If your lucky the peacocks will be showing off their feathers.

Parking is an issue and should be free,The cafeteria is lousy and not clean. It is clearly notices that there is few lifeguards or non available in the artificial canoeing pool. Especially at the corners ( the location far from the staging area. I have spotted couple of kids at the edge of falling into the pool.
