The DNA of this small, peaceful village is undoubtedly the historic Grenville Canal and the many heritage houses that line its banks. The centre of the village, with its large park, playgrounds, skating rink, library and community hall, is a preferred gathering place for families!
The Grenville Canal was the first canal built along the Ottawa River and played an important role in the history of Argenteuil and Lower Canada. Built between 1818 and 1833, the canal was 9 km long and had 7 locks! Following the construction of the Carillon dam, most of this old canal system is now under water. Today it is frequented by boaters and fishing enthusiasts and is a popular stopping spot for cyclists.
The Maison du Patrimoine de Grenville, recognized as a heritage building by the municipality, has undergone significant restoration work thanks to the mobilization of the community. It was one of the first houses in the village.
There are several walking trails where you can stretch your legs at the end of the day, including along the Grenville Canal which extends into the Ottawa River and offers beautiful views.
The border town of Hawkesbury, Ontario is just across the Long-Sault Bridge. You can even walk there! Hawkesbury is an important services hub for eastern Ontario.
