Poutine, with 2 additional steamie hot dogs.
After Ile Perry, I crossed the Rivière des Prairies to reach the town of Laval. There, I walked in Parc Gagné, Parc des Prairies and Berge Délia-Tétreault. I then crossed the river again in order to take the subway at Henri-Boussara station, near Parc Ahuntsic in Montreal.
On my last day in Montreal, I went for a walk near Rivière des Prairies, on the northwestern part of the island of Montreal. There, I walked in Parc de la Merci, Parc des Bateliers and Ile Perry, a small island in the river. I then crossed the Rivière des Prairies to Laval.
The Canal de Lachine is a canal passing through the southwestern part of the Island of Montreal, running 14.5 kilometres from the Old Port of Montreal to Lake Saint-Louis. The canal was built to bypass the treacherous Lachine Rapids on the Saint-Lawrence river upstream of Montreal. After completion of the canal in 1825, its banks became a major industrial area of the city. However, the canal closed to shipping traffic in 1970, a few years after the opening of the Saint-Lawrence Seaway (in 1959), which bypasses the rapids starting in Longueuil, on the other side of the river.
The canal is lined with a nice path, suitable for walking and biking, all the way from the Old Port to Lake Saint-Louis. I followed that path on foot until the Saint-Henri neighbourhood, where I took the subway back to Downtown.
Tori Paitan ramen “Nouveau Classique”. It was really good.
Parc Jean Drapeau is a large park in Montreal located on Ile Saint-Hélène and Ile Notre-Dame, in the Saint-Lawrence river. It is named after Jean Drapeau, who served as mayor of Montreal for many years. The islands were the site of Expo 67 and the best-known and most visible feature of the park, the Montreal Biosphere, is a remnant of that event: It was the pavilion of the United States during the Expo.
“Hangover Cure” (Lendemain d’brosse) poutine. It was a bit of a departure from the traditional poutine but it was really good.
Parc de Dieppe is a park located at the northern tip of the Cité du Havre in Montreal. It is surrounded by the Saint-Lawrence river and offers a great view on the Old Port and the Ile Sainte-Hélène. When I visited in 2016, it was called Parc de la Cité du Havre: In August 2017, the city changed its name to Parc de Dieppe, in honour of the 75th anniversary of the Dieppe raid during WW2.
