Discover the urban areas of Vaudreuil-Soulanges on this bike trail, which takes you through some of the region’s loveliest residential areas. In Hudson and St. Lazare (where the trail hooks up with the municipal network), stray from the path and discover some new neighbourhoods. In Vaudreuil-Dorion, you will discover historical treasures like Trestler House, Maison Valois, St. Michel Church, and the Musée régional de Vaudreuil-Soulanges. A little ways out of town, on the Lake of Two Mountains, stop off at the Maison Félix-Leclerc de Vaudreuil to check out the permanent exhibition and relax in the park.
Located on Chemin de L’Anse, this historical Second Empire home was built in 1880 and was the home of internationally-renowned poet, artists and chanteur Félix Leclerc between 1956 and 1966. Take some time for a picnic and to watch the sailboats on the Lake of Two Mountains.
Down in the southern part of the region, take in the old hydro station located in Les Cèdres, which was once the residence of painter Reynald Piché or visit the Maison Pierre-Charay, workshop of painter-enameler Bernard Séguin-Poirier. In Pointe-des-Cascades, the lovely Théâtre des Cascades and the Centre d’interprétation du parc des Ancres are worth visiting. Both housed in buildings from the time of the canal’s heyday, the two sites offer a glimpse back on the small town’s past.
