Accessible facilities

Fort Lennox National Historic Site

A situation beyond our control has forced us to temporarily suspend access to the fortification buildings.
From June 15, 2024, until further notice, Parks Canada staff accompanies visitors to Île aux Noix and offers a guided outdoor tour of the buildings and fortification. This 45-minute tour will be offered free of charge. Please note that it is not possible to picnic on the island. Picnic tables are available on the pier near the boarding dock.

What is an accessible facility?

Accessible facilities are designed to eliminate barriers and encourage full participation of persons with limited physical abilities. Fort Lennox National Historic Site offers some accessible and adapted services for our visitors with restricted physical ability.
