Since opening two years ago, parc Frédéric-Back, formerly Miron Quarry, never ceases to amaze, from its biodiversity to the activities offered onsite. It’s the most ambitious environmental rehabilitation project ever in the urban setting, with an incredible 192 hectares of land, including 7.5km of trails for walking, jogging, cycling, cross-country skiing and even showshowing. Its welcoming and unusal layout make it the ideal landmark for families to enjoy nature and experience a vast pastoral landscape right in in the city.
TOHU is proud to offer a diverse range of activities yearround, free for everyone thanks to financial support from the City of Montreal. The cultural activites, with performances and workshops, are presented as part of Arts au parc, Maïs et culture, and Les Étoiles au Cinoche. These outdoor physical activities are graciously offered to you in all four seasons. Finally, there are educational and environmental activities for the whole family, including guided tours of the park by bike, tours of the many highlights of the Saint-Michel neighbourhood, and opportunities to discover the architecture of TOHU‘s green building, the Soccer Center, to enter the den of Biomont, the Sorting Center, and much more!
This metropolitan park dedicated to the environment, culture and sports will be completed in 2025.
Come witness the metamorphosis of the SMEC!

*Note that there are no toilets, drinking water or food sources in the park. We suggest that you bring water bottles and snacks with you on your next visit. Of course you can always access TOHU, the reception pavilion, if you need it.
THE FREE ACTIVITIES ARE MADE POSSIBLE THANKS TO THE CONTRIBUTION OF THE CITY OF MONTREAL.
