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. It was classified as a historic monument by the Quebec Ministry of Culture and Communications in 1984.

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.

The main accesses are via the following parking lots:

  • Pointe-des-Cascades (67 chemin du Fleuve, in front of the church)
  • Les Cèdres (on Saint-Féréol, immediately north of the intersection with Route 338)
  • Coteau-du-Lac (20, rue Principale)
  • Les Coteaux (in front of the intermunicipal swimming pool located at 51, chemin du Fleuve)
