The Muséoparc Vanier Museopark is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development, preservation and dissemination of both the tangible and intangible heritage of the Quartier Vanier, Richelieu Park and the French-speaking population of Ottawa, for the present as well as future generations. It is the only francophone museum in Ottawa and one of the rare Canadian museums outside of Quebec dedicated to the French-speaking community. At the Museopark, you can take part in several activities such as talks, heritage walks, kids activities and much more.

We also invite you to visit our sugar shack, which is located in the midst of Richelieu Park! The first sugar shack was built in the Richelieu forest by the White Fathers who made syrup for their religious community. The order left Vanier in the mid-1970s. After their departure, a group called Action Vanier took over the tradition and rebuilt the sugar shack on the same site as the White Father's original sugar shack. The Richelieu Park's sugar shack continues to carry on the tradition of the maple sugar season. The new sugar shack as we know it today was inaugurated in 1998. Each year, 1000 trees are tapped in the traditional way to produce about 400 litres of maple syrup. The sugar shack can accommodate up to 42 people. The sugar shack can be reserved for such occasions as Christmas dinners, weddings, dance evenings, etc.

Every year, a Maple Sugar Festival takes place. During the festival, many activities are offered to visitors to give them a chance to appreciate their day in the Richelieu forest.
