Overlooking the Saint-François River, Drummondville was established as a settlement for British soldiers to guard against American attacks during the War of 1812. It’s home to a recreated 19th-century village and fascinating photography museum and is near a working farm where alpacas and ostriches roam.
Experience Drummondville in the 19th century at Le Village Québécois d’Antan, a recreated rural village with actors in period costumes. Wander between the old buildings while learning about the industries of Quebec and life in Drummondville, as well as the cultural customs of the Québécois.
Travelling with kids? Let them run loose at Woodyatt Park, a green oasis in the city centre that sprawls around the Saint-François River. There’s a children’s playground, picnic areas and cycling trails in the warmer months, with an ice-skating rink installed during winter.
Get up close to charming alpacas at the Bel Alpaga Bon Autruche Farm, which is located in the nearby town of Saint-Bonaventure. In addition to farming alpaca wool they raise ostriches for their meat and oil. There’s also an on-site restaurant and tasting room where you can sample their unique products.
