Parc de la Cité, Longueuil

Park de la Cité is a small urban park with two connected, artificial lakes. The park is located within the Southern residential areas of Longueuil.

How to Get Here

The park is connected with bike routes at North and South and therefore easy accessible by bike if you live in the area. I am not aware of any public transportation to the park.
