    Long Walks and Bikes
    I am so upset that I did not discover this part of town until we were at the end of our stay in Montreal. I would have returned many times. Nice long walks with lots of interesting things to look at and lots of historic markers explaining what had been along the Canal. Great for bikes also and some good picnic spots. Plus places for coffee. A gem of the city.

    Short Visit
    We combined our visit to the canal after wandering through Atwater Market. It was an easy five minute walk away. The views by Atwater were not as nice as the photos posted by other reviewers but it was a starting point. You could see the original canal, biking and walking paths, bridges and so on from this viewpoint. Next time we will need more time to explore further.

    Walking area
    I only walked a small area but it was a nice experience from the old port toward Atwater market. The Lachine Canal is an iconic gem located in the southwest of Montreal. Its 13.5 kilometer track between the Old Port and Lake Saint-Louis, its waterway, its green urban park, its industrial remains and its riverside activities make this site an experience to share.

Visiting the south end of the Lachine Canal provides a glimpse into the evolution of the canals. The north end (at the port) provides a little more. There are parts restored and visible, others not so much, since the entire canal fell into disuse after the St. Lawrence Seaway with its larger locks and channels was opened in 1959-1963.

Used to be one of the major transportation means of the city, Lachine canal is a means of recreation now which is used widely by locals as a biking and walking trail. It is so calm and scenic to go for a long walk early in the morning or throughout the day.

A wonderful place to run, cycle, walk or even picnic. Water levels rise in the summer to allow for boating and kayaking/canoeing. Can be quite busy summer weekends. See my pictures from different times of the year.

The Lachine Canal runs 14.5 km from the Old Port until Lake St. Louis in the west. The city has made it nicer and more accessible for bikers. The bike path runs from the Old Port all the way until the west which makes it a pleasant place to be on a sunny day. The city of Montreal has also built nice condos in the area that are close to the downtown area with nice views of the water. This is a very nice area to have a picnic or just stroll by foot to admire the famous canal. The city is working very hard to make it a nicer area every year with a lot of construction to make it a more pleasant area to come too.

This bike path takes you to all main attractions or Montreal. I’ve crossed the bridge,visited Old Port,went to Quartier des Spectacles etc. This Canal is very close to one of the best Markets of the city,Atwater. I recommend.

The Lachine Canal is a great way to spend a couple of hours walking - it has dedicated bike and pedestrian lanes all the way from Old Montreal to St Ambroise.
