The Rivière-des-Mille-Îles Park: for those who love nature!
A dream spot to enjoy the fresh air in a metropolitan setting! This wildlife sanctuary in Laval is a joy to discover. Perfect for outdoor enthusiasts, the Rivière-des-Mille-Îles Park offers a variety of eco-friendly boating activities. And now open is the brand new Exploration Centre.

An Exploration Centre that has a lot to show!

Open in time for summer, the new Exploration Centre at the Rivière-des-Mille-Îles Park is ready to welcome its first visitors! This centre houses a permanent exhibition about the story of the river, its vast ecosystem and the environmental issues that affect it. Inside you’ll find an ecology lab where many species are displayed as well as a spectacular entrance, a café (opening summer 2019) and rooms that can be used to host events. Also part of the Centre is a boat rental service.

Putting the theory into practice

After your visit of the exhibition, you’ll probably want to see the river with your own eyes! A fascinating time around the islands of the archipelago is within reach when you rent a kayak, canoe, rabaska, paddleboard, paddleboat or rowboat. You could also choose a pontoon cruise aboard the Héron Bleu that will take you to see the many facets of this most interesting river! The boat can also be chartered for group outings.
