Promenade Bellerive Park
Promenade Bellerive Park is an urban park, located in the south-eastern corner of the island of Montréal, along the St. Lawrence River. The park which total area is of 22 hectares (54 acres), offers a unique environment that is as stunning as it is peaceful and as imposing as it is fragile. It offers a gorgeous view of the river and various cargo ships passing through to the Port of Montreal. In fact, two different worlds rub shoulders at this river site.
The promenade runs through rustic and melodious settings created by the beautiful, protected shorelines facing the St. Lawrence River and the verdant islands of Boucherville. But just offshore is a world of heavy industry and steel, with huge cargo ships passing within just a few hundred metres to unload their containers on the opposite banks. Summer activities here include social dancing and outdoor shows.
A river shuttle service (ferry) at Promenade Bellerive provides a link between Montréal and Charron Island, which is three kilometres (about 2 miles) from Iles-de-Boucherville Park. The west side of Promenade Bellerive is connected to four other outdoor sites: the Park L.- O.- Taillon, the Park Clément-Jeté, the Park Pierre-Tétreault and the Park Honoré-Mercier. This park serves as the departure point for many boating activities on the St. Lawrence.
This park is an ideal spot for a variety of outdoor activities. Indeed, in the park, guests can practice cross country skiing, cycling, fishing, birdwatching, walking and more. A lovely playground has been built there.
