Once again this week we will be visiting two locations that we have not visited in the past. We'll be heading to two South Shore parks; Parc Radisson in Brossard and Parc de l'arrondissement in La Prairie.
We will meet in the parking lot of the former Target/Wal-Mart store at Place Portobello on Taschereau Blvd. in Brossard and then drive from there to the parks.
