How to Get Here

Take Montreal Metro Green Line towards Angrignon until station De L’Eglise. On Wellington Street take bus 58 to Eduard / 5th Avenue, and take the short walk to the shore of the river. Unfortunately, line 58 is not passing frequently and with bad timing between metro and bus you may end up waiting for the bus. On Wellington, you may wonder which direction to take bus 58: Stay of the side of the church.

What to See Here

An aquatic habitat along a river. You can watch all sorts of common and less common waterfowl. With some luck you may spot Muskrats or even a North American Beaver or American Mink. During sunny summer time, watch out for turtles on trunks or stones.
