The Tournée des bancs is a walking route that takes you around the streets of Douglastown, where some benches have been installed so you can enjoy the view, rest or even workout. Every bench is unique and was handcrafted by a resident of Douglastown. They are installed on private properties where landowners have graciously agreed to host them for free.
Part of the city of Gaspé’s Parcours énergie network, the Tournée des bancs offers 5 stations across the route. Panels will show you the exercises proposed by trainer Isabelle Provencher. They are also available as podcasts, using the QR code provided.
The Tournée des bancs is a project created by the residents of Douglastown and the Douglas Community Centre
