A region that is both young and dynamic
Bordered by Montréal to the south and the Laurentian mountains to the north, the city of Laval comprises both residential neighbourhoods and industrial sectors. With almost half of Laval's vast territory reserved for green spaces, nature lovers find it difficult to choose between the large, carefully maintained parks, the area's golf courses and the fields teeming with fruits, vegetables and multi-coloured flowers! Whether you enjoy shopping, cycling, fine cuisine, visiting farms or greenhouses… it's all right here, waiting for you in this urban region bursting with activity!
A bayou in the city's backyard
A wide river, some 30 islands covered in luxurious forests, swamps and bayous… find it all in Laval, just outside of Montréal, at the Parc de la rivière des Mille-Îles. The ideal location for those who enjoy hiking, kayaking or rabaska canoeing! In the winter, there is a 12-km (7.45-mi.) ski trail, and skaters can enjoy a 1-km (0.62-mi.) stretch along the frozen river.
Museum tours that are sure to catch your interest
The Cosmodôme is a complex dedicated entirely to conquering space. In the science centre, you can take a trip through our solar system, touch a real Saturn V rocket engine and admire a piece of lunar rock. At the Space Camp, thanks to NASA-type simulators, you can even simulate a walk on the moon! The Musée Armand-Frappier, named after a pioneer of scientific research, is dedicated exclusively to biosciences. At the Centrale de la Rivière-des-Prairies, you can see up close the turbines and spillways used for producing electricity. Also, there are many greenhouses open to the public in this horticulture capital of Québec. Visit the Économusée Fleurineau to about the traditional techniques used to dry flowers. Attractions in Laval are most often avant-garde and anything but dull!
