For families

Playing outdoors with your family should be simple, cost-effective, and most of all, fun!

Regional parks are part of them and are ideal for families who wish to sample the joys of an active lifestyle.

Accessible trails, discounted fees, fun activities, free equipment rental… services vary from one park to another. One thing is for sure: it has never been that easy to play outside. There are about 175 regional parks in Québec and many of them are located a stone’s throw from our communities. Keep an eye out, chances are there is one real close from your home!
