Warmer weather marks the end of Gatineau Park’s winter season. Once the snow has melted, our maintenance crews will start cleaning up the parkways for summer use and will gradually update signage accordingly.

Thank you for your patience and kind words, given the unpredictable weather. We would also like to commend Services récréatifs Demsis and the professional and volunteer patrols for their hard work over the winter season!
