Parc Du Mont Arthabaska

Mont Arthabaska offers the most beautiful view of all of Victoriaville. It provides a wide range of easily accessible outdoor activities, is five minutes from downtown, and its summit is accessible by car. You can go hiking or snowshoeing on 10 km of marked trails in the middle of the forest and end with a superb view from the observation deck.

For mountain bikers, it is the only mountain in Centre-du-Québec to offer 19 km of very technical trails. There’s even a terrace at the top. The Bistro-bar Le Mont provides light meals and amazing microbrewery beers to sip in the fresh outdoors. Several free outdoor shows are presented in the summer, as well as outdoor yoga.

Réservoir Beaudet

During annual migration south from their nesting grounds in the Canadian Arctic, an estimated 50,000 snow geese take residence around the park. That immense number can easily double before packing up and moving southwards. Each day, they fly out of the city to the harvested fields to chow down, and at dusk, they return to spend the night in the safety of the water. It’s a wonderful place to take children to view special aspects of nature. Many other species of birds will be seen there throughout the year.

This is a great park with a 5km loop around the lake. It’s a wonderful place for a picnic, with easy walking trails, calming fountains along the way, and various bird-watching habitats. There are tables to enjoy a meal, good access to clean bathrooms, and some pubs and nice restaurants.

Musee Laurier

Visit the home of Canada’s seventh Prime Minister and the first French-Canadian Prime Minister, Sir Wilfred Laurier. A true historical landmark, this Victorian-style home was classified in 1989 as a Historical Monument of Quebec and a National Historic Site of Canada in 2000. It was built in 1876 for $3,000 by the architect Louis Caron. However, as Prime Minister of Canada, Laurier had to stay permanently in Ottawa with his wife, Zoé.

He would spend some of his summers and Christmas holidays in this home. The house was turned into a museum in 1929, and visitors can see his apartments. There is also an exciting exhibition on his political life and the people in his spheres at the time. The tour guides are dressed in period costumes and will reveal some little-known facts about Laurier’s career and private life.

Musee de L’Hotel des Postes

The Post Office Museum was built in 1910 for the Post Office Department of Canada and was Wilfred Laurier’s last gift to his adopted city. The building is now considered a heritage building and is being used to house temporary exhibitions of art and history. A permanent exhibition in the building replicates a post office from 1910-1920; visitors can see this and be taken back to a different time.

Grange Fleury

In 1998, the Laurier Museum wanted to create cultural activities for children to participate in, so they created a theatre for young people. The barn on the same property as the Laurier house was adapted into a place for plays and other theatre activities. Children can participate in cultural activities in the old barn-style building.

Bois-Francs Linear Park

Opened in June 1997, the Bois-Francs Linear Park bike path begins in Tingwick and crosses several municipalities, reaching Lyster.

Laid out on an old railway track with a rolling surface of stone dust on 90% of the 77 kilometres of track and a maximum drop of 2%, the Bois-Francs Linear Park crosses most of the St. Lawrence Lowlands. Made up of large flat plains and scenic clearances along the route are common, which gives cyclists a feeling of freedom. ​It offers a view of generous nature with breathtaking panoramas. In the forest, in the countryside or near waterways, it’s an overall delightful cycling experience.

The Bois-Francs Linear Park has earned several awards from the tourism industry. It was named “Silver National Winner,” “Tourist Company – Public Prize,” and “Regional Winner” in several competitions. The park has even received the Ambassador par excellence prize, awarded by Tourisme Bois-Francs.
