Take a breath of fresh air at this big park in the heart of the city. Boasting an ice fishing village, trails suitable for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing and a skating rink, the Rivière-des-Mille-Îles Park in Laval is the ideal spot to enjoy all your favourite winter activities.

Winter family fun

Hassle-free fishing at an accessible location is possible thanks to the park’s Turnkey ice fishing packages! Learn the basics of ice fishing and how to gently coax the fish out of the water at the authentic fishing village or choose the brand new "Fishing adventure" package. There are also other packages available, including "Initiation to ice fishing" and "Guided family ice fishing", which promise fun for the whole family as parents and kids learn about the correct fishing techniques.

What could be more fascinating than watching animals in their natural habitat? Go from island to island as you discover the wildlife around the river on an ecotourism hike guided by a naturalist. You could also learn more about the history of the area and the biodiversity of the Mille-Îles River by taking part in the Winter Rally held on two dates during the season: February 9 and March 2.

A new Exploration Centre

In March 2019, the Rivière-des-Mille-Îles Park will be delighted to welcome its visitors to a new Exploration Centre. The Centre will house a permanent exhibition highlighting the story of the river, its vast ecosystem and the environmental issues it faces. It will also include a brightly lit welcome hall with a boat rental counter, a café, an ecology lab accessible to the public, rooms for groups to rent and a day camp.

For special events

The new Exploration Centre will now have a magnificent space with a view of the river perfect for hosting special events of all kinds. The three multipurpose rooms have a capacity of up to 150 people. When you hold corporate events at the Rivière-des-Mille-Iles Park, you’ll be contributing to the park’s projects of preserving, protecting and valuing its exceptional wildlife habitat.
