Pincourt: a city with irresistible charm
Welcome to Pincourt, in the heart of Île-Perrot, where urban tranquility lives in harmony with nature. A beautiful place to call home, featuring an exemplary quality of life on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, just 45 minutes from the city.
A family destination par excellence, Pincourt offers friendly neighbourhood life, enhanced by a host of sporting, outdoor and cultural activities for full-time, year-round fun. Here’s a quick overview and a guided tour of this haven of peace that’s rapidly gaining in popularity.
A great big playground
Cycling and bike paths
Biking enthusiasts will be thrilled! Pincourt has a beautiful and safe network of bike paths; 11.4 km of trails make it easy to get around town. There are also several other ways to explore Île-Perrot. Follow the water’s edge on the Circuit du Moulin path via Cardinal-Léger Boulevard and Chemin Duhamel. Take a well-deserved break at the Pointe-du-Moulin Historic Park. From 5th Avenue, access la Route Verte, the most extensive cycling network in North America.
Plenty of parks and play areas
A dozen parks in Pincourt alone, where you can enjoy the fresh air and beautiful sunshine. You’ll find play structures suitable for all age groups, as well as for people with reduced mobility (parc du Suroît), pedestrian paths, picnic areas, baseball, soccer and petanque fields. At Michel-Martin Park (Île-Perrot), the Zone ta graffe invites young artists and graffiti artists to express themselves on a special creative wall. Pincourt also has a skatepark featuring a ledge pyramid, kicker ramps, rails and a ledge with coping, for the enjoyment of young people of all ages. In the winter, many skating rinks and slides will delight families!
Swimming and enjoying the proximity of the river
There’s plenty of fun for bathers and water sport enthusiasts too. Behind the Omni-Centre, a beautifully landscaped swimming pool features 8, 25-metre swim lanes, 2 springboards and a toddler splash pad. Plus, there’s easy access to a dock to launch your boat for an exceptional outing at Ambrosio Park. Île-Perrot is also part of the St. Lawrence Water Trail: a marine trail featuring exceptional biodiversity; the waterway is designed for small non-motorized boat excursions. A natural jewel you truly must discover!
