The Park

History

Today the Atlas Park il an exceptionnal 45 acres site consiting of a deep lake with limpid water and a majestic and well kept forest.

This was not always the case. This serene landscape was once a limestone quarry (from 1945 to 1956 and also 1962 to 1963). After it was closed, the deep stone-pit filled with water from an underground source. Slowly this limestone quarry transformed itself in to the wonderful site we now have. A site that is ideal for entertainment.

Seeing this opportunity, the village of Pointe-Verte purchased the site and transformed it in a recreational and tourist site.

The Atlas Park opened it's doors on August 18 th 1990. Since then, visitors from near and far come in to take advantages of the many activities (hiking, snowshoeing, fishing, scuba diving, pedal boat) and the many avents offered at the parc.
