Visiting Verdun and the st-Laurence river

A Verdun Terrace on Wellington

Ice cream, beside the Verdun yacht club, circus school, a great kids park, and the river's edge walking path to the east.

Yes, you sit at the water's edge

Yacht club and Nun's island

Ahhh, summer.

We spent some time in deep-south Montreal exploring Verdun's Wellington avenue, and then the riverside path "Les Berges" for a nice close to home bit of summer exploration.

Wellington can be a real melange between the old and the new quebec.

The waterfront area is the jewel in the area, landscaped, with both walking and cycling paths, right down to the water-level. There are numerous kid-friendly facilities, and the martime/riverside aspect is a rare item indeed for those of us who don't live in one of the waterside burroughs of Montreal.
