Cradled between hills and rivers

Project of the Pontiac Chats Falls Park

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 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, along the banks of the Ottawa River.

A joint effort from the following partners has lead to the project:

  • MRC Pontiac
  • MRC des Collines-de-l’Outaouais
  • Local development centre (CLD de Pontiac)
  • Local development centre (CLD des Collines-de-l’Outaouais)
  • Municipality of Bristol
  • Municipality of Pontiac
  • Conférence régionale des élus de l’Outaouais (CRÉO)
