Parc des Chutes (Falls Park) offers hiking trails into a world of discovery, two footbridges providing access to the riverbanks and a 33-m (108-ft.) waterfall. This site provides great photo opportunities and is ideal for nature lovers and picnickers. An old hydroelectric power station located at the foot of the falls has been restored and is producing electricity once again.
