Parc des Rapids Outing: There is free parking. It’s accessible by public transit. It has flat surface trails; easy to get around. There are different habitats making for more types of birds and, with the marshy area, the opportunity to see many birds close up from the trails that run through it. There are a few public washrooms within a walking distance, however due to COVID-19 sometimes they can be closed. The group will meet at 9:00 AM at the Parking lot located on the corner of boulevard Lasalle and boul. Bishop-Power. There will be a Contactivity Staff holding a sign, please check in with them upon arrival.
