Montreal – Parc Rene-Levesque Park

The Rene-Levesque Park is a large nature area that combines trails for walking and for biking.  The 2.9k (1.8miles) path is flat, easy to access and offers an outdoor sculpture exhibition. While exploring, you will have the chance to see panoramic views of the water: Canal Lachine and Lake Saint-Louis. The trail is at the extreme west section of the Canal Lachine Promenade.  After the Canal Lachine lock, there are two options: Parc Rene-Levesque or direction the old canal.

This urban peninsula is free to access but you have to pay for parking.  They have picnic tables, benches facing the water or long chairs along the path to appreciate the views and an arboretum. Many outstanding artworks are dispersed in the park and it is home to many birds.

The park is named after Mr. Rene Levesque who was the Prime Minister of Quebec from 1976 to 1985.

When visiting, you can combine your visit with the Canal Lachine promenade, Lachine Museum and Maison LeBer-LeMoyne, Fleming Mill, Canal Lachine Locks and the Fur Trade Museum.
