A wonderful path along the Lachine Canal and into the Old Port of Montreal

We began our trip from the Lachine Lock #5, near the Lachine Museum, where it was quite easy to find parking. We then followed the path to its end in the old Port of Montreal. It... read more

Lovely area, you can rent a bike as there is a great bike path that will take you to Old Montreal or in the opposite direction to the West Island. Many places to stop and sit for people watching as well.

The Lachine Canal is always a great place to stroll with your bike along the bike path. You can bring a picnic basket along and eat at the marina or even hop on a boat for a small cruise in Lake St-Louis.

One of the best Canal to walk thru and enjoy the scenery in Montreal - A must to see. The gateway to a network of canals linking the Atlantic Ocean to the heart of the continent, the Lachine Canal paved the way for the urbanization of the island of Montréal's southwest. Sail in tranquility on the canal, stroll or ride... More

This is the perfect place for a run in Montreal. The address listed in TripAdvisor is not the starting point where I picked up the trail. If you are staying in Old Montreal, make your way down to the port trail and at the end you will find the beginning of the Canal de Lachine trail. The trail is very... More

This is a beautiful site to pass the day outside with friends and family on a nice sunny day. You have a enchanting landscape with view on the canal and downtown skyscrapers, and plenty of places to sit down after a little walk, a nice jog, a bike ride or even a boat ride (you can rent Kayaks, little motor...

Many earlier reviews accurately discussed how wonderful The Lachine Canal is for a bike ride or a walk. I would add that if you stop at the tourist information center and pick up the excellent red Montreal map, you can see all the bike friendly streets color coded. These marked streets often have a separate bike lane and are often... More

The walk along the canal is a wonderful way to spend some time. As earlier reviews stated, there are some bikes along here that appear to be training for the Tour de France, but a little watchfulness solves that problem. We did not encounter any rude cyclists - just speedy. The Atwater Market is very close to the Canal and... More

Basically it is the history of commerce in Montreal and now a pleasant area to visit through neighbourhoods that are constantly evolving and thriving.

Staying in Quartier International

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier International
Designed to connect and beautify unused space, today the Quartier International is like a transversal piece of modern art. The distinctive design flair is most apparent at its focal point, the Palais des Congres, a convention center and retail space with a multi-colored glass exterior and an equally bold interior motif. Outdoors too, the Quartier is friendly towards public art exhibits along its stylish, plotted city squares, with extra-wide sidewalks meant to encourage long strolls and shaded benches available for absorbing the atmosphere. Fresh air and promenades characterize the area, from the foliage of Victoria Square to the fountain of Place Jean-Paul Riopelle, while the restaurants along Rue Saint-Antonie Ouest and Metro stops modeled in the Parisian style give off European glamour.
