In-line Skating in Gatineau Park
The Quebec Highway Safety Code applies to the parkway network in Gatineau Park. This regulation prohibits the use of in-line skates or roller skis on a roadway when the road is open to motorized traffic.
However, you can in-line skate or roller ski on Gatineau Park parkways when the roads are closed to motorized traffic. This is the case every Sunday morning from the end of May to the beginning of September, during the Alcatel-Lucent Sunday Bikedays.
Help us protect Gatineau Park and leave no trace.
