Parc-nature de l’Île-de-la-Visitation is the most urban of the city’s nature parks. This linear park runs along the Rivière des Prairies and includes an island called Île de la Visitation.


Parc-nature de l’Île-de-la-Visitation combines nature and history, and is packed with activities for everyone. Visit the ruins of old mills and the historic Maison du Pressoir, and admire the Rivière des Prairies from the lookouts. Take to the trails on foot or by bike and observe hundreds of species of birds. In winter, strap on your cross-country skis and ski along the water’s edge, follow a course or glide downhill on your snow mats.
