With its valleys and meadows dotted with white spheres, Parc Frédéric-Back is a green setting open to all. The former quarry and landfill site has gradually been transformed into a large park dedicated to the environment, culture, leisure and sports.
It is an ideal place to practice outdoor activities such as running, cross-country skiing, biking, and to observe insects, birds or stars. Take advantage of the trails and participate in the various cultural activities introduced in the park. Partners also offer educational activities and introductory courses. See the program for more details. In winter, visitors can walk (7km), snowshoe (7km) and fatbike (5.5km) on the same trail.
An all-terrain wheelchair is available free of charge all year long at the TOHU reception pavilion. It makes trail rides easier. No reservations needed.
