Map of Laval

Welcome to Laval!

Quebec's second largest city is located on the historic Ile Jesus (Jesus Island), across the Riviere des Prairies (River of the Prairies) from Montreal. The city is known for its abundance of parks and farmland, for its thriving arts scene, and for its historic neighbourhoods ripe with eclectic shops, restaurants and bars. Plenty of activities await visitors to Laval. Art lovers can explore the city's numerous museums, art galleries, theatres and the intricate architecture of its heritage buildings. Outdoor enthusiasts can visit green spaces such as Parc de la Riviere-des Mille-Iles (Thousand Islands River Park), spend a day playing one of Laval's golf courses, or rent canoes to paddle the river in the tradition of the coureurs de bois (the notorious fur traders of the 17th century). For an authentic Quebec experience, visit a maple sugar shack, such as the Cabane a sucre Lalande. Laval's most popular attraction is the Cosmodome, an interactive museum devoted to space sciences.
