Boasting bucolic scenery, the stunning Parc de la Rivière-des-Mille-Îles and the recently developed Route verte, Laval has its fair share of hidden treasures to explore. The Route verte is undoubtedly one of the best ways to discover the natural lushness that frames the Laval cityscape. From the south to the north shore of the island, there is a surprising abundance of green spaces and things to see. Starting at the Perry Island bridge, a former railway that has been renovated for use by pedestrians and cyclists, you can cross from Montréal to Laval, passing through parks and wooded areas as you travel northward. The route, which often runs alongside the
peak-hour commuter train tracks, is composed almost exclusively of bike paths. But what about the industrial areas? Well, there’s more to see than you would expect.
La Route verte est une idée originale de Vélo Québec réalisée avec le ministère
des Transports du Québec, le gouvernement du Québec et des partenaires régionaux.
