Driving to Gatineau Park 

The Park is open year-round, as are the municipal access roads, although some parkways and access roads are sometimes closed to motor vehicles to support recreation in the Park. In the winter, the parkways are closed to traffic and used as cross-country ski trails. If you’re driving to Gatineau Park, consider carpooling. Parking lots fill up quickly, especially on weekends.
