Lake of Nations

Located in the heart of Sherbrooke, Lake of Nations is a place to meet for people who like to join family and friends for sports and cultural activities. A long promenade on its shores delights walkers, in-line skaters, ice skaters, and cyclists (equipment can be rented on site).

Guests are invited to admire pieces of art displayed in the city galleries and try fresh and top-quality products grown or prepared by local folk at the famous Marche de la Gare (Train Station Market) on Minto Street.

Inside the Market, you can discover the history of this part of Sherbrooke heritage through an exhibition devoted to the evolution of the Canadian Pacific train station. Guests can learn about important historic events, such as the visit of King and Queen of England, George VI and Elisabeth, who stopped here in the summer of 1939.

Outside the Market, visitors enjoy entertainment and cultural activities all year long in an animated atmosphere. The downtown no-fee shuttle bus allows you to take advantage of an easier access to tourist sites both downtown and around the Lake of Nations.
