You can easily make 40-50 km on bike by canal. This is, together with paths on south shore, by far the best biking place i Montreal. Al by the water, no other traffic, dedictaed bike paths.

The four of us rented bikes and set off along the canal. We stopped to provision at the Atwater Market, and at about mile nine we stopped for a lovely lunch. We joyfully completed the the next nine miles happy, invigorated, and somewhat tired. Ready...More

This Canal was described as an “escape from the city”. Couldn’t have been more wrong! There is construction all along the Canal. There were several buildings being built and construction on the walking path itself. Very noisy and a not a pleasant walk at all....More

One of the best open spaces in the area approx 14 km of canal to walk, cycle or run if your that way inclined a truly peaceful and lovely area well worth the visit.

Still has signs of the industrialisation that took place many years ago. Now just a nice place to bike/stroll or even Sun bathe! Feels like a neighborhood with a community spirit. Market nearby. Not surrounded by restaurants and yuppies.

This is one of the nicest walks one can have in Montreal. It is also possible to rent a bike or a kayak.

There's nothing quite like getting away from the bustle of Montreal for a few hours to walk, run, or bike along the Canal-de-Lachine, especially in the warmer months of the year.

We didn't have our bikes with us, but there is a lovely paved path all along the canal in Lachine. We spent our time mostly at the fur trade museum (on the canal) and at the locks. The area at the locks is particularly interesting...More

Great place to walk along the canal. Kilometres of trails for bikes and foot along this once active transportation system now turned into a park. If you like walking try this place out

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young

Ya that is probably your best bet. But if you want to be a bit closer to Old Montreal, you can park in Pointe St.Charles on the south side of canal, on any side street it's free also - and then walk east along canal to the... More
