Rollin' down the river

Published on

This summer, head out to Verdun for a breath of fresh air and an almost seaside atmosphere. All of this is just steps from the metro... Rollin’ down the river!

Whether you want to kick back and relax, or find a playground or a pool for the kids, the five kilometres of landscaped green spaces along the river offer a vast range of possibilities, by bicycle or on foot. 

Feeling peckish? 

Promenade Wellington with its sunny terraces is just minutes away – or dig in to the delicious fare served up at the food trucks nearby. All that’s left to decide is where to eat your feast: at a table, on the grass or maybe even on a floating dock.   

Running shoes or dancing shoes?

It's not just the runners who are drawn to shores of the river. The large outdoor dance floor invites everyone to get their moves on all summer long. And music lovers will love the program of free outdoor concerts.

Travel back in time

At the foot of the Lachine Rapids, on Montréal’s largest prehistoric archaeological site, sits one of the oldest rural houses on the island, Maison Nivard-De Saint-Dizier, which is now a museum. In addition to the permanent exhibition that delves into 5,500 years of history, the museum offers a rich cultural program throughout the summer.
