Dorval Travel Guide
Welcome to Dorval!
Home to the Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport, Dorval is the port of entry for many visitors to Quebec. Although it was considered a borough of the City of Montreal for many years, Dorval proudly re-claimed its status as an independent city on January 1, 2006. Dorval enjoys a convenient and scenic location on the southwestern portion of the Island of Montreal, along the shores of Lake St. Louis. The region has a vast history dating back to 1665, when the community was founded by Sulpician priests who established a mission at what was then called Ville-Marie (City of Marie). Today, the city boasts an abundance of parks and green spaces, and offers a variety of recreational activities, including golfing and boating. Visitors can take a trip into Dorval's colourful history at the Dorval Museum of Local History and Heritage.
La Route Verte is a cross-provincial bicycle network that covers 3,600 km (2,237 mi) of terrain and will cover over 4,000 km (2485 mi) when complete.
