The scenery is lovely here at Parc national de la Yamaska. Whether you're on a bicycle or on foot, you can enjoy travelling several kilometres to take in the pure air of nature and discover a valley typical of the Appalachian Lowlands. A witness to the park's creation in 1983, Réservoir Choinière is a 4.7-km2 expanse of water, perfect for boating activities. This vast body of water is teeming with life. Fish, frogs and Great Blue Herons call the park home, along with the many other animal species that find refuge here. This diversity makes nature observation a very interesting activity, season after season. When winter comes, the whole family loves getting out into nature and onto our sparkling snowshoeing and cross-country skiing trails.
