In Pointe-aux-Trembles, tucked in a corner between 2nd and 3rd Avenue, is a small riverside park – the park of the Old Mill. The park hosts a historic windmill overlooking the Saint Lawrence river.
The windmill itself is a tiny museum that documents the importance of the windmill to the local community. The windmill is only open to visits during the summer, and events are also hosted in the park.
The park looks over the Saint Lawrence with a terrace. It’s a very pleasant spot to relax and make you think of times gone by. For us, it was a pleasant visit not to far from home on the first day of the new year!
