Family Day at Bois de Liesse Park Jan. 24

User Rating: / 32

Saturday, January 24 will see a Family Day in Bois de Liesse Park, one of the big nature parks on Montreal Island. The fun starts after 1 PM with the rendezvous point in front of the Acceuil des Champs chalet. A colorful afternoon is promised with snow sculptures and campfires. Free activates here include sledding (there are 2 sledding hills), snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, walks in the woods, and bird watching. There are many kilometres of woodland trails as well as two heated chalets in the park. Equipment rentals available include sleds, skis, and snowshoes.

The evening sees a promenade under the stars beginning at 7 PM with two options available. The first option is a guided walk through the forest with park naturalists who help explain how native animals adapt to survive Quebec winters. The second option involves a self guided nigh time ski with headlamps. Both options return to the chalet where marshmallows can be roasted on fires until about 9 PM.  Fees apply and reservations are necessary for the evening activities.

Similar activites will be held Feb 7, 14, and 28. More information is available from 514.280.6729 where reservations can also be made.

Fees: Individual: $7; Family: $21; Parking $9/day
