paths and not pick any of the plants. Besides, no fishing must be carried out in
areas where fishing is not permitted, in order to protect the waterfront and
wildlife that have made their home here. A sanctuary for migratory birds, the
Parc Des Rapides is full of birds and small animals; feeding them or disturbing
their habitat may prove harmful to them.
