I like everything of this canal . a ride on bicycle is the best to see the entire canal but you can also go on boat kayak etc. If you like beer , in summer theres a beautiful microbrewed beer Saint-Ambroise on the road HAVE ONE apricot is the best

Starting from the famous Atwater market, the landscaped Lachine canal stretches for miles along the waterway eastward and westward. Should you stroll westward to stop for a Ste Ambroise brew along the way, the path continues past Industrial buildings and old train trestles scrubbed clean to blend into the park-like scene. Bike out further: all the way to the park that juts out into the St Lawrence River: the scene is idyllic. The weeping willows beckon you to relax under them for a while: to slowly munch on that sausage and cheese sandwich you brought from the Atwater Market .
Should you direct yourself eastward from the Market towards Old Montreal, outstanding views of Mount Royal and the City are the background to the emerging wide expanse of the canal and river. Just a beautiful stroll. It will take you about 90 minutes before you reach the Old port of Montreal-there to watch the passing parade from one of the many cafes while you dig into a croque monsieur.

I find this is a great area for biking, jogging or walking along the water's edge. Nestled between the big city and the western suburbs, people converge to enjoy the great views of Lake St. Louis and the Lachine Canal. Have an ice cream, watch a dragon boat race, or just sit and relax; this is the ideal place.

One of the very best places to go for a run, cycle or long walk starting from right in the middle of the city centre/old port.

Well maintained paths for foot or wheel...

Loads of lovely grassy sun traps to chill out.

We love to walk along the Lachine Canal...start at Atwater and go all the way to Old Montreal. The views are wonderful. If morning, stop for a café-au-lait and croissant either before or after; if afternoon/early evening, a stop for a glass of wine would be perfect!
