The Rivière-des-Mille-Îles’ Park encompasses an array of natural areas, bodies of water, islands, marshland and coastline, all of which are maintained and overseen by Éco-Nature.
The Park’s territory also includes municipal grounds and multiple private properties, united in part because of Éco-Nature’s grassroots sensitization work and the association of individual landowners sympathetic to environmental conservation issues. Indeed, the Park boasts of a rich and unique biodiversity, which its official “Wildlife Reserve” status homologates. Its territory, formally declared a protected area in 1998, includes ten islands covering 26,2 hectares of private land belonging to the cities of Laval and Rosemère as well as to Éco-Nature.
Also in 1998, thanks to the establishment of numerous explanatory elements, the Park was recognized as a “Museum Institution” by Québec’s Ministry of Culture, Communications and the Status of Women. As an interpretive area, the Park offers the invaluable wealth of a literally life-sized museum! Its décor is composed of authentic bayous, a calm, shallow and safe river, blossoming marshes, slough forests and its isles’ lavish vegetation, all of which form an enchanting “green labyrinth”. Half an hour away from Montréal, these nearly twenty accessible isles are an important and unique Québécois touristic halt. Come revel in its flora and fauna, discover its waterways by means of canoes, kayaks or rabaskas; feel free to tread its paths year-round on foot, on snowshoe or even by means of Nordic skis.
