Located a few steps from the downtown area, the Lac-des-Nations promenade is Sherbrooke’s natural heart! Both a gathering spot for urban outdoor activities and a perfect place for festival and family activities, the Lac-des-Nations is a must see in Sherbrooke.
A Walk in Urban Nature
The Lac-des-Nations promenade is, first and foremost, a multipurpose urban path around the lake. Discover it on foot, on a bicycle or on in-line skates! Bordered by beautiful landscaping; along the path you will be able to make a stop to appreciate the beautiful scenery at one of the two resting areas: the Fontaine Cascade and the Halte des Nations.
Festivals and gastronomy abound!
On one side of the lake you will find the Marché de la Gare
that houses many specialized boutiques offering local gastronomical products. Right next to the market is the Tourist Information Center
, your source of information about the region.
On the opposite side of the lake sits the parc Jacques-Cartier, one of Sherbrooke’s outdoor festival venues all year long!
