The Parc-nature du Cap Saint-Jacques is Montréal’s largest park. It’s part of the Grand parc de l’Ouest and is bordered by the Lac des Deux Montagnes and the Rivière des Prairies. The park’s many paths offer magnificent views of the water.


The Parc-nature du Cap-Saint-Jacques spans an area of 330 hectares. It is home to a sugar shack, two heated welcome centres and an organic farm. As you stroll through the park, keep an eye out for its historic buildings, the Maison Thomas-Brunet and Château Gohier.

You can take part in many activities there throughout the year, such as swimming, cycling, camping, sledding, snowshoeing (5 km), hiking (7 km), cross-country skiing (14 km) and fatbiking (6.5 km).
