Pontiac’s Chats Falls Park is an innovative recreational and touristic project located by the Ottawa River, less than one hour away from the major urban centres of Gatineau and Ottawa. It blends breathtaking scenery with rich historical remnants.

The Park borders the municipalities of Pontiac and Bristol and the territories of the MRC des Collines-de-l’Outaouais and the MRC of Pontiac.

Chats Falls Park will lead regional development efforts, for the benefit of surrounding communities.

The Park will offer visitors a unique recreational and interpretation experience in a natural environment that is extremely well preserved.

It will promote outdoor activities, on land and in the water, and will make visitors aware of historical events that occurred in this area, on the banks of the Ottawa River.

Land Planning Concept

The land planning concept of this leading recreational and touristic project will stimulate the economic development and prosperity of the region. The project will be undertaken in a sustainable manner, in order to protect the natural environment and habitats that are essential to the fauna, flora and landscape.

Development

The Park will be developed in conjunction with existing recreational and touristic attractions and services and will promote the history of the region. A feasibility study is underway. There are a few steps to complete before making the project official and implementing it.

Let us build together a project that is respectful of our region, that takes root in our traditions and that will improve our quality of life, now and for future generations.
