Parc-nature du Bois de l’Île-Bizard is located on the northwestern tip of Île Bizard, near Montréal’s western region. At this exceptional green space bordering the shores of Lac Des Deux Montagnes and Rivière Des Prairies, you can observe a wide variety of fauna and flora in its swamps and wetlands.
Parc-nature du Bois-de-L’Île-Bizard includes a rich variety of ecosystems and several hiking (7km) and cycling trails where you can birdwatch or admire other flora and fauna. Gaze across the marshes or check out the migratory geese along the lakeshore. During the summer season, a small beach located on a Lake of Two Mountains bay welcomes families with young children. In the winter, strap on your cross-country skis (7km) or snowshoes (12km) and discover the beauty of snow-white open spaces. While the park chalet is closed this winter, it does offer washroom facilities on a daily basis.
