Parc du Lac Beauchamp Professional Review and Guide

"What do you do with the site of an abandoned mine? You make it a park, of course! And that is what happened with the City of Gatineau’s Parc du Lac Beauchamp. Between 1927 and 1959, a number of firms extracted mica and silicates from this land, gouging a huge pit in the process. When the mines were abandoned as no longer profitable, the pit filled with water and the scarred landscape slowly began to reforest."
