Roadside Attraction: Wholesome Fun!

Posted by MP / September 2, 2007

A recent trip to Laval bordered on excitement with the discovery of a fantastic miniature golf course right near the Autoroute des Laurentides. Les Rocailles is a mere stone's throw from the Southbound lanes of the 15, and provides excellent entertainment for people stuck in the evening rush hour.

With a few other adventurous spirits in the auto, we veered off at the next exit (where the 15 meets the 440), and proceeded to get lost in a couple of homogeneous Laval housing developments. Not deterred, we managed to direct ourselves to a nearby construction site, in view of our goal.

From this site, we were luckily able to see the Roccailles billboard, giving us the key directions to fun! "Curé-Labelle, Dagenais Est" was all we needed to get where we were going.

Now, Les Rocailles is not the most well-maintained golf course in the area. Indeed those few miniature golf courses I've played have usually been partly neglected. The green is laid down almost directly on concrete, giving the ball an unnatural ability to roll forever, ruining some of those less-than-genteel short putts.

Nonetheless, there is wonderful landscaping, and besides the low-level car noise in the background (which you can actually block out), you really feel like you're in a nice natural surrounding, not next to a highway in the middle of a suburban hell.

So head out to Les Rocailles - or, reply to this story, and tell other miniature golf enthusiasts where to find a better spot!
