Located on the West Island of Montreal, the borough of L’Île-Bizard-Sainte-Geneviève has many vast green spaces and covers an area of 23.6 km2.
The borough is bordered by two rivers, Lac des Deux Montagnes and Rivière des Prairies, which surround L’Île-Bizard. The river also runs along the north shore of the Sainte-Geneviève sector and forms a natural boundary between the two sectors of the borough.
Located across the street from the Sainte-Geneviève district, Île-Bizard is a very peaceful residential neighbourhood that offers magnificent views of nature. Surrounded by vast green spaces, including the Bois-de-L’Île-Bizard nature park and three golf courses, L’Île-Bizard stands out for its rural character and its Paysage humanisé project.
Located at the foot of the Jacques-Bizard Bridge and along Gouin Boulevard, the village of Sainte-Geneviève is full of well-preserved heritage buildings. Several of them were chosen as part of the Opération patrimoine architectural de Montréal. The neighbourhood is home to société patrimoine et histoire de L’Île-Bizard et Sainte-Geneviève and Salle Pauline-Julien.
