Parc de l'île Melville Enjoy the outdoors - Enjoy the outdoors


The Parc de l'Île Melville – which was known as the Parc des Chutes Shawinigan up until 2004 – consists of a huge area of shore land and of two islands (Melville and Banane) cradled in the majestic Saint-Maurice River. It is ideally located, right in the heart of downtown Shawinigan. Visitors can either camp here or stay at the inn, and are welcome to take part in the many outdoor activities offered both in winter and in summer.
