This 216 hectare park offers pleasant wooded walking paths, a footbridge over a marsh where we may view turtles, ducks, herons and other birds. On our journey we will stop to view wildlife at the observation points of Le grand Heron and  Le bihoreau.. As we pass through the park and head over to the Laval Rapids section, we will have a short walk. We will then retrace our steps and head to the observation area Le petit butor. We will then head towards the beach and the Chalet d'accueil. If you wish to bring wine and cheese, we shall enjoy it after the walk on the shores of  Lac des Deux-Montagnes.
