Located in the north side of the island of Montreal, Ahuntsic is a tranquil district of the city. It is located right along the Riviere de prairie (opposite the St. Lawrence River). There are bicycle trails that run along the river. It is a residential part of the city. It has a lot of parks, shopping malls, cafes and restaurants. A very popular park located in this area is called Rainbault park. Many people visit this park on the weekends to play sports, to picnic, sunbathe or lie under one of their beautiful weeping willow trees. The river has many frogs jumping from one lilly pad to another. It looks like a scene from a disney movie.
Some of our homestay families live in this area of the city. It is a bit of a commute to get to the city center but it is definitely worth it!
