Pointe-aux-Prairies Nature Park is a large park in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is located on the eastern tip of the Island of Montreal, near the Rivière des Prairies, in the borough of Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles.
In the 1980s, the regional parks of Rivière-des-Prairies, Pointe-aux-Trembles and Bois-de-la-Réparation were combined into a single nature park. Following a competition held in Rivière-des-Prairies and Pointe-aux-Trembles primary schools, the Montreal Urban Community endorsed the name of Pointe-aux-Prairies for the park. This name was suggested by a young student who wished to associate the name of the two districts where the park is located. It was officially named in 1987.
