The centre écologique Fernand-Seguin
With it brand new LEED-certified reception building, the centre écologique Fernand-Seguin now ranks as a top-quality destination for outdoor recreation. Its noble and distinctive tree species contribute to making this 65-hectare forest a highly valuable ecological site. Included in Châteauguay’s network of parks, the area is one of the most visited parks in the region. Access is free at all times as are some of the activities offered. Héritage Saint-Bernard has the mandate to manage and protect the ecology centre.
Although at all times five kilometres of hiking trails are accessible at no cost, the ecology centre is especially popular during the winter months with its 20 kilometres of trails for cross-country skiing, four kilometres for snowshoeing and two kilometres for walking. There is also a small hill to enjoy sliding.
The ecology centre is accessible via Fernand-Seguin street in Châteauguay (at Brisebois boulevard intersection). Dogs, other domestic animals and bicycles are not allowed.
