At Parc National de Plaisance

There are a lot of things going on at Parc National de Plaisance Saturday! In fact, it’s Québec National Parks Day, and there’ll be a lot of action: at 9:30, you can attend a sale of used Park items (such as kayaks, rowboats, etc.), and you’ll have a chance to attend the official opening of the Zizanie-des-Marais trail, the famous 400-metre-long floating walkway. What’s more, the first Clay Festival will be held at the Dollard-des-Ormeaux picnic area! A dozen potters and ceramicists will be on hand to show their creations and you can take part in various workshops related to this natural resource that’s so abundant in our region.
