Wel­come to Gatineau Park. More than 35,000 hectares of un­spoiled land — and love-at-first-sight lakes — can be ex­plored in the nearby Gatineau Hills. Hun­dreds of kilo­me­tres of foot­paths wind their way through the park, mak­ing it great for sum­mer hik­ing. Gatineau Park beaches (O’Brien, Blanchet, Bre­ton, Par­ent, Smith, and La Pêche), as well as the Leamy Lake beach in Gatineau, are of­fi­cially open un­til the Septem­ber long week­end. Ca­noe and kayak ren­tals can be found at La Pêche and Philippe lakes (shown at right). The park is also the site of the Macken­zie King Es­tate, coun­try home of Canada’s ec­cen­tric for­mer-prime min­is­ter. gatineau­park.ca
