A 180-km-long route of heritage finds and riverside history


Parcours riverain is a new website inviting you to discover Montréal’s shorelines and their heritage.

Made up of the old roads running along the St. Lawrence, Lac Saint-Louis, Lac des Deux-Montagnes and the Rivière des Prairies, this riverside route is dotted with over 900 heritage attractions reflecting the greatest moments in Montréal history. Nature lovers and history buffs alike can walk along eight of these riverside heritage destinations, as well as explore other places in the network of sites by car or bike, or even kayak! The new website provides a starting point for Montréal cultural tourism partners to use the open data included in its pages to enrich their respective projects and enable us to envision the future of these remarkable areas together. Discover it for yourself!
