Where We Train

Verdun DBC paddlers train on the Lachine Canal across the street from the Dompark Complex at 5527 St. Patrick, just west of de l'Eglise. We suggest you park on the north side of the canal at the Gadbois Centre, at 5485 Chemin de la Côte St. Paul where there are changing rooms and showers (do not leave valuables in your car or your locker).
