  • Make sure to check out the cave. This park has everything for everyone
  • Having lived mostly around Montreal for years, I never really heard about the Gatineau Park. After moving in the region, I was shocked to discover this massive, gorgeous, well kept park which I barely knew as a “nice” place to visit. To me, it’s by far the best feature of the Outaouais and is worth several visits, which won’t be enough to see all of the park
