A gem of the Outaouais region near downtown Gatineau
Soon to be a century old and still full of energy, I’m one of the gems of the Outaouais’s industrial history! If you’re coming to the region and are looking for a great free activity, why not pop in to see me? It’s sure to be a unique outing, whether you come alone, with your better half or your family!
You’ll be invited to go inside one of my generating units and look straight up to admire a 160-tonne rotor in action! I’m convinced you’ll love the experience! I bet that you’ll also be impressed by my unique structures, especially my weir that discharges water into the former bed of the Rivière Gatineau.
The guides will be happy to share my story with you. Before my river was used to generate hydropower, it was used for log driving. But that’s all I’ll say for now. To unlock all my secrets, you’ll have to come for a visit. I can’t wait to see you!
