Renowned for its Montreal-Trudeau International Airport, Dorval is home to a variety of unsuspected attractions: lakeside trails, marina, islands, water races, skating rinks, sports fields... Large homes on large lots make it a family-friendly area.
Bordered by the cities of Pointe-Claire, Dollard-des-Ormeaux, St-Laurent and Lachine, and bordering Lake St-Louis, Dorval is a borough that is home to the Montreal-Trudeau International Airport (formerly known as Dorval Airport). Residents live mostly in the southern part of the territory, away from the airport and industrial areas.
Dorval is composed of three islands (Dorval Island, Bouchard Island, Dixie Island). Several parks are scattered throughout the municipality. Residents can enjoy a scenic drive along Lakeshore Road, which extends from Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, to Beaconsfiled, to Pointe-Claire, to Lachine, linking the municipalities of the West End of Montreal. West of Dorval Island, at the northeast end of Lake St. Louis, the famous Montreal Yacht Club - and its magnificent marina - invites not only to nautical activities (sailing, motorboating, swimming)... but also to social activities (tennis courts, club shows, "fun" sail races...). It's a great way to get away from everyday concerns and have fun with family and friends.
A WIDE RANGE OF RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES
The Westwood Sports Center, arenas, aquatic centers, golf clubs, skating rinks and outdoor ice rinks, bike paths, trails, skate parks, sports fields, bike parks, and soccer and baseball fields are just some of the recreational activities available to the more affluent residents. This array of recreational spaces somewhat overshadows the importance of industrial parks in the area, including the strong (and audible) presence of Montreal-Trudeau Airport.
HOUSES AND FAMILIES
The real estate is mostly single-family homes (townhouses) and condos in buildings of five stories or less. The area - as a good bedroom community - offers the opportunity to build large homes on large lots. An ideal living environment for families, at least for those who don't mind the noise of airplanes. The most beautiful homes are found south of Highway 20 and tend to attract young French-speaking professionals with their children. There is no shortage of schools, as well as public transportation, including the Vaudreuil-Hudson commuter train that crosses the city from east to west.
