The banks of the St. Lawrence


Detailed neighbourhood map


Welcome to this special park between the city and the water. Come skate—in summer or winter!—or pedal, stroll its paths, watch the water rushing by... or just soak up the atmosphere.

The Port of Montréal, among the largest container-handling ports on the eastern seaboard of North America, now extends several kilometres east of the Jacques-Cartier Bridge. Thanks to the revitalization of its oldest section in recent years, Montrealers are rediscovering the St. Lawrence.

You can sense the strength of the current as you approach the banks of the St. Lawrence. Just a few kilometres upstream are the boiling Lachine Rapids. After all, that is why Montréal was located here, on the last peaceful harbour along the St. Lawrence.
