The Waterfront Route is made up of ancient roads along the St. Lawrence, Lake Saint-Louis, Lac des Deux Montagnes, Rivière des Prairies, the Lachine Canal and the Aqueduct Canal. 180 kilometers long, it is punctuated by more than 1000 heritage elements that evoke the major pages of Montreal's history. Heritage buildings and complexes, maritime infrastructures, nautical equipment, parks and shoreline walks, views of bodies of water, coastal landscapes, natural environments and archaeological sites follow one another. Each of the heritage elements is associated with a historical theme: * The Montreal archipelago and the Native American presence * Waterways to trade and settle * Agricultural villages * Water, a resource to be exploited and controlled * Workers' villages * Shorelines, spaces for well-being and recreation * Shores, spaces for well-being and leisure * Parks on the shore * Parks on the shore * Water, an obstacle to be crossed by bridges and crossings * Transit villages * Other notable elements unrelated to the themes histories An interactive cartography [interactive cartography] ( https://montreal.ca/articles/le-parcours-riverain-22677) is available to explore waterfront routes on Montreal Island.This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).
