Situated on a peninsula alongside a sandy bay surrounded by trees, Parc-nature du Cap-Saint-Jacques is one of Montréal’s biggest parks. It is home to a sugar shack, two heated chalets and an organic farm, among other things. You can indulge in many activities there throughout the year: swimming, cycling, snowshoeing, sledding, hiking and cross-country skiing. Outdoor aficionados will appreciate the on-site equipment rental service. As you traverse the park, keep an eye out for its historic buildings: the Thomas-Brunet house and Château Gohier.
