Parks Canada wishes to inform the public that this winter, the path at the Lachine Canal National Historic Site will be groomed almost over its entire length, on a distance of 13 km linking the Lachine, LaSalle, Le Sud-Ouest and Ville-Marie boroughs. The path will also be groomed on both sides of the canal between the Atwater Market and Old Montréal, improving access for users in Le Sud-Ouest. The Parks Canada team will groom the path.
In addition to cyclists, everyone will be able to enjoy the groomed path, which provides an opportunity to practise various winter activities including fat biking, snowshoeing, running and walking. Restrooms will also be open to users during the cold season at particular locations along the winter trail.
Parks Canada works with its partners to develop the recreational offerings at the Lachine Canal and to encourage the practice of outdoor winter activities for the year-round enjoyment of all visitors to this exceptional site in the heart of Montréal. The Agency would like to acknowledge the collaboration of the City of Montréal and its boroughs for their support in providing this groomed trail.
