Take a break from your outdoor adventures at one of the picnic areas in Gatineau Park.

The parkways are open to motor vehicles and active users according to a variable schedule. Don’t forget to check on hours and access routes before heading out.


  • Dogs and pets are not permitted in the Gatineau Park picnic areas.
  • Do not feed animals. Nature provides them with all that they need.
