Along the edge of Rigaud Hill, Chartier-de- Lotbinière park is one of the nicest spots in the region for family gatherings, sports, relaxing and more. Stop by for a picnic before continuing your day. The park offers access to the L'escapade trails, a network of 20 km of both short and long trails through the forest of Mount Rigaud. Watch out for birds as you explore: there are over 150 species to spot, including migratory birds. Throughout winter, try snowshoeing, fatbiking, downhill skiing or skating on the 700 metre-long frozen track that circles the park. You can also play hockey at the outdoor rink! Equipment rental is available at the L'escapade chalet. In summer, play all your favourite sports like volleyball, tennis, or come cheer on the baseball teams. There's a skatepark and an outdoor training spot to help you exercise and get in shape. Activities are always running with many local partners, so stay updated! With ample parking, benches and public restrooms, the park has everything you need for a great experience that's both close to town and close to nature!

Bleuetière biologique Au Fin Délice 2

Venture into the western part of the region, where rolling fields and pastoral views will take your breath away. Here, in Très-Saint-Rédempteur, you will find an exceptional organic blueberry patch nestled in a maple grove. The farm is the result of two passions, one for maple production, and the other for blueberries, and the owners are proud to share their knowledge and the fruits of their labours with all their guests. Pick your own berries in this oasis of peace, discovering nine different varieties that will give you a whole new appreciation of this super fruit. Near the Ontario border, Au Fin Délice is easy to reach from Montréal or Ottawa, and all points in between. If picking your own blueberries is not for you, the boutique has plenty of freshly-picked berries to bring home for pies, jams, smoothies, or for enjoying on their own. The boutique also sells maple syrup products from syrup collected on site and a variety of unique blueberry baked goods, spreads, and irresistible chocolate-covered blueberries.
