Ourcq canal - Crégy-lès-Meaux
The Ourcq canal, which is approximatively 100km long, passes through nine cities of the urban community from Varreddes to Trilbardou. The canal have been considered a place of relaxation and leisure for a long time. The towpath is perfect for a family stroll ; the setting being sometimes urban, sometimes green. You can take advantage of the layout to practice roller or hiking.
