Parc-nature du Cap-Saint-Jacques

Regional / municipal park Region:Montréal City : MontréalDistrict : North-West

At the western tip of Montréal island, you will find the largest park of the network where the lac des Deux-Montagnes and the rivière des Prairies converge. Whether you are at the ecological farm, in a picnic area, on the beach or in the forest, you will appreciate this area set in the wilderness and many lookout points on the waterfront. Nature buffs can stop by the Havre aux tortues to learn more about this fascinating world. If you like cross-country skiing, a stop at the château Gohier or the sugar shack during the weekend will surely sweeten your day.
