The Old Limoilou neighbourhood continues to grow in popularity. In summer, head for the bike path and explore the banks of Rivière Saint-Charles.

Stroll along the neighbourhood's avenues and discover 19th century homes and other charming buildings, or visit scenic attractions like Cartier-Brébeuf National Historic Site of Canada. The park at Pointe-aux-Lièvres is also a great place to go skating in winter.

Inspired by the system in place in New York City, the sector's streets and avenues are numbered. Many of them are well worth a closer look:

  • 1re Avenue is Limoilou's oldest thoroughfare (1665)
  • 2e Avenue is home to a lovely collection of typical local homes with their red bricks and spiral staircases
  • 3e Avenue is a bustling shopping street with everything from exclusive boutiques to stores selling local specialties.
