Sutton’s nature park (PENS, Parc d’environnement naturel de Sutton) offers you an amazing environment to wander through with your mom. For example, the path leading to Chute du pékan waterfall is a lovely one-hour hike suitable for all levels. The exercise and fresh air you will enjoy while taking advantage of the awakening spring flora will surely become one of your fondest memories. Psst! To reward yourself for your efforts, why not stop at La Rumeur affamée on Sutton’s Main Street and savour one of their delicious desserts.
