Things to do
Welcome to the Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue Canal where visitors can stroll along the boardwalk, watch boats pass, admire the remains of the first canal, stop at a restaurant terrace or picnic in the greenspace. Then prowl the shops along Sainte-Anne Street and, in mid‑June, have fun checking out the vintage cars lining the shores of the canal. What a day!
Free lockage day
This one’s on us!
In 2017, to celebrate Canada 150, Parks Canada offered free admission and welcomed over 27 million visitors to our national parks, national marine conservation areas and national historic sites. What better way to say “thank you” to our visitors than to offer a free admission day?
Admission is already free on Canada Day, but we’re adding another day for you to enjoy your favourite activities without paying any admission fees.
In 2018, we will offer free admission on July 7th .
