Revel in the beauty of nature at the Gatineau Park Visitor Centre Picnic Area. Nestled in the heart of Chelsea Quebec, this magnificent park invites families, kids and nature enthusiasts to explore its wonders.

A Family-Friendly Haven

Gatineau Park offers the perfect spot for family outings. With free parking and its proximity to the Sugarbush trail, the Visitor Centre, and the charming Old Chelsea, it's a place where memories are made.

Indoors and Outdoors

Whether you prefer the comfort of an indoor setting or the fresh air of the outdoors, Gatineau Park has it all. The "Relais de la Sucrerie" offers a warm and cozy indoor option, located conveniently close to the Visitor Centre on Scott Road in Chelsea.

Explore the Trails

Start your adventure at the Sugarbush Shelter, located just behind the Visitor Centre. Here, you'll find a wood stove, tables, a waxing table, picnic tables, and an accessible outhouse. This is the starting point for several trails, including the short and accessible Sugarbush Trail, and the hiking, mountain biking, and cross-country skiing Trail 1. You can also explore the snowshoe trails 60 and 61 - two short loops just over two kilometres long.

The Charming Chelsea Village

After exploring the park, take a stroll into the village of Chelsea. Here, you will find delightful cafés, tempting ice cream shops, unique boutiques, and a relaxing spa.

Facilities and Regulations

Convenience is key at Gatineau Park. You'll find washrooms, drinking fountains, a lunch room, and free parking. Please note that dogs and pets are not allowed in the picnic areas. We also ask that you do not feed the animals and take your trash back home with you.

Step into nature's playground at the Gatineau Park Visitor Centre Picnic Area in Chelsea Quebec. Experience the tranquility, explore the trails, and discover the charm of Chelsea Village. Your adventure awaits!
