At the heart of nature


Anyone who loves the outdoors and as-far-as-the-eye-can-see nature will be thrilled to explore the Anse-du-Port ecological park. It’s a great place to view the sunset on Lake Saint-Pierre and excellent for wildlife-watching. Be sure to bring binoculars; there are many beautiful species of water birds that call this park home. You’ll also find many parks and wooded areas perfect for a forest hike, not to mention several lakes, bridges and footbridges at the heart of wonderful natural environments.
