Four seasons on Montréal’s Lachine Canal

Find abundant nature, local history and physical activity all year along Montréal’s scenic Lachine Canal. From the Old Port to its western edge along the Saint-Lawrence River, the Lachine Canal travels across the city for 14.5-kilometres – walk, run, bike or ski along the once-industrial canal’s green banks or drive to festival sites, historical destinations and excellent restaurants to glimpse yet another side of Montréal. Winter While the canal’s path isn’t maintained from November 1 to mid-April, Montrealers make their own cross-country skiing and snowshoeing routes alongside the frozen waters. Bring your own gear or rent snowshoes and sleds at Fitz & Follwell near the foot of Mont-Royal Park, and skis and snowshoes at La Cordée in the Village and in Mile End, MEC or Poubelle du Ski. If you prefer your sports indoors, try rock climbing at one of the biggest and best climbing gym’s in Canada: Allez Up, canal-side on St-Patrick Street in Pointe-St-Charles. Last but not least, let’s eat: restaurants, cafés and bars proliferate in the blocks surrounding the canal in the neighbourhoods of Old Montréal, St-Henri, Griffintown, Little Burgundy, Pointe-St-Charles, Ville-Émard, Côte-St-Paul, LaSalle and Lachine. The bountiful Atwater Market is a must in St-Henri as are… / Read More →
