Lachine is by far the most dramatically changed borough in Montreal in the last 25 years.
Due to its recent transformation, it has become a magnet not only for people looking for a tranquil setting, but also for avid cyclists who enjoy their sport along the Lachine Canal, which runs all the way to the Atwater market and across the Old Port.
Also accessible by bicycle, the Lachine public market is the place to go for local produce and other fresh food products available all year long.
Located in the southwest part of Montreal, Lachine is a stone throw from downtown and close to the Montreal-Trudeau International Airport.
History buffs will enjoy the Lachine Canal National Historic Site of Canada, which traces the history of this important Montreal waterway.
Culture is not lacking in Lachine. In fact, art and history can both be found in the Muse de Lachine, housed in a building dating to the XVII century, not to mention the sculpture gardens of the "Musée plein air de Lachine". The borough also has entertainment venues that are regularly booked with artists on tour.
