The park is named after the Côte-de-Liesse, a former municipality that existed in the area, before being divided into Dorval, Lachine and Saint-Laurent in 1957. The town was named for Liesse-Notre-Dame in France.
The park was established in 1984 and has an area of 158 hectares (390 acres). The reception center is located in Pitfield House, which was built between 1952 and 1954 according to plans by the architectural firm Archibald, Illsley and Templeton. It was acquired by the Montreal Urban Community in 1979.

This century-old forest of black maples is home to a diversified ecosystem. you can see several species of plants and animals. Wildflowers carpet the forest floor in spring, the Bertrand stream teems with a rich aquatic fauna and birds sing undisturbed. When snow covers the ground, the park becomes a meeting place for winter loves. The 158-hectare playing field features cross-country skiing, hiking and snowshoeing trails, as well as two sledding mounds. The park’s winter landscape is sure to delight visitors.
