Canal de Soulanges

Pointe-des-Cascades

Regional park driven by history

Stretching on 23.5 km, the Soulanges Canal is an old waterway that connects the municipalities of Pointe-des-Cascades, Les Cedres, Coteau-du-Lac and Les Coteaux. Inaugurated in 1899 and closed to navigation in 1959, the Soulanges Canal is considered a major heritage in Vaudreuil-Soulanges.

To experience the best of the canal, visitors can ride on the Soulanges bike path, which follows the canal along its length and continues in the towns of Saint-Zotique and Rivière-Beaudette.

Among the major points of interest on the shores of the canal are the Parc des ancres de Pointe-des-Cascades, the former Les Cèdres hydroelectric power station – le Petit pouvoir and the Thomas-Monro / Louis-Stanislas-Pariseau Park.
