Recreational park in a natural environment with magnificent landscapes and landscaped reception sites.
Built from 1926 to 1958 by a forward-thinking horticulturist called Elsie Reford, the Reford Gardens are one of Canada’s national historic sites. Some 3000 species and plant varieties, including the famous Himalayan blue poppy, are spread out over 15 gardens.
Observe Salmo Salar cross the fall and then rest in a natural pool of several hundred large specimens that make the fame of the Causapscal river. You will appreciate the variety of activities and will be impressed by this encounter.
Named a site of aesthetic interest in La Matapédia, La Chute à Philomène, 33 meters high, is undoubtedly one of the region's main natural attractions. The site offers two trails to admire the top and the foot of the fall. There is a picnic area. In novelty! The La Matapedia mountain biking club has set up a suspended platform (belvedere) that overlooks the waterfall! A stop is needed!
