Leamy Lake Park in Gatineau is the largest urban park in Canada’s Capital Region and an excellent spot for outdoor sports and recreational activities. The park has a supervised beach for swimming, two volleyball courts and a play area for children. Leamy Lake Park contains important archaeological sites, which show that people occupied the spot as early as 5,000 to 6,000 years ago. The northern section of the park is an exceptional site for birdwatching, with over 30 species of birds.

This 174-hectare park opened in 1961. The Park is surrounded by Leamy Lake and the Gatineau and Ottawa rivers. To reach the lake by boat, you must go through the Leamy Lake Navigation Channel. This channel also leads to Lac de la Carrière and the Casino du Lac Leamy. You can also reach the park by bike or on foot using the Leamy Lake Pathway. Leamy Lake Park is located on Fournier Boulevard in Gatineau (Hull sector).
