In its continuing efforts to offer healthy and safe outdoor activities during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the NCC is pleased to advise outdoor enthusiasts that it will increase the parking capacity in the Philippe Lake sector of Gatineau Park this winter.

Starting Wednesday, November 25, 2020, as a pilot project, the Breton Beach parking lot will become the P20 parking lot. From P20 parking lot, users will have:

  • access to over 150 parking spaces;
  • a new, closer, departure point for many winter accommodations;
  • access to alternative trails between P19 and P20 as the Philippe Lake Parkway will be plowed between these parking lots.

Once the winter season officially begins, there is a fee to access the cross-country ski, snowshoe and snow biking trails in Gatineau Park. You can purchase a daily pass, or save with a season pass.
