Discover the pleasures of Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles



Located at the eastern tip of the island of Montréal and bounded by the Saint Lawrence River and the Rivière des Prairies, the borough of Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles (RDP-PAT) offers a uniquely enjoyable natural environment and public amenities unlike any other in Montréal, with easy access to the water.


RDP-PAT also has a rich architectural heritage in the historic districts of Rivière-des-Prairies and Pointe-aux-Trembles, which are Montréal’s 2nd and 4th oldest parishes, respectively.


With over 60 km of bike paths, RDP-PAT is a cyclist’s paradise. The convenient and easy-to-use bike path network includes two historic routes, featuring 18th-century residences and lovely Victorian homes. The beautiful Saint-Joseph Church, located at 10050 Gouin Boulevard, is a fascinating heritage site known for both its beauty and its historical importance.


With its many guided attractions for visitors, including the Village-de-la-Pointe-aux-Trembles square, the Pointe-aux-Prairies nature park, the Pointe-aux-Trembles windmill (celebrating its 350th anniversary in 2019), the panoramic viewing area along the river, the public square at Saint-Joseph Park, and the only outdoor BMX track on the island, RDP-PAT definitely has a lot going on! And let’s not forget the Vague estivale, presenting major events and performances in our parks every summer… for free!


As a gateway to the island of Montréal, RDP-PAT is so welcoming and surprising that it’s easy to fall under its spell!
