This park in Rivière-du-Loup offers a unique ice climbing site.
Lit until 11 p.m. every day from mid-December to mid-March, the ice wall is artificially created. It is easily accessible via a 5-minute walk along a marked trail.
This site is affiliated with the FQME, the provincial mountain climbing association, so to climb you need to be a member (annual mountain pass) or purchase a day pass. In addition, obviously only Mother Nature has control over the quality of the ice.
This site also hosts the Grimpe en Ville climbing festival in February every year.
How to get there
From downtown Rivière-du-Loup, take Rue de la Chute, Rue Amyot (parking lot for motorcoaches) or Rue Frontenac.
Located in the heart of downtown Rivière-du-Loup, this oasis of green space offers hiking trails, nature observation and various family activities. The site is divided into three distinct sections: the Platin, the Parc de la Croix and the Grandes Chutes, an area where you can observe a 33-metre (108-foot) waterfall and discover a 100-year old hydroelectric station.
