Inaugurated in 1876, the Mount Royal Park was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the highly skilled designer behind New York's Central Park. It is an ideal site for admiring a wide variety of plants and birds or for enjoying outdoor activities. Les...more

This was an EXPERIENCE! I happened to go on a day where it snowed and apparently had been snowing for days because it was piled up. I wasn't wearing the right snow gear but it was all so worth it. The views from the top...More
It was an arduous climb with steps galore (this almost sounds like an understatement) but the panoramic vista of Montreal offered by the vantage point at the top justified the physical exertion. We went in autumn, possibly the best season as the fall foliage was...More
Plan at least 4 hours if you decide to walk from the bottom. A beautiful walk that ends on the béveldère where you can have a view of downtown Montreal and the south shore. You can take a break on the edge of the lake!...More
Hiking was easy; short trails aren't that challenging. Beautiful views from behind the information center. You need to carefully read the bus map and pickup points as the printed map we used did not show the correct location of the bus stop.
For the best view of Montreal, you must head to the top of Mount Royal! You’ll have a view of the skylines like nothing else. A large beautiful park that could take days to explore. The scenery is great and as is the public art....More
We walked across the park east to west and truly enjoyed the roads without cars (the roads were snow-covered so it was too slippery for vehicles). A long walk that I can only imagine is spectacular in all seasons. People were ice skating on the...More
We entered the park form the cityside and went all around the "mountain" to get up to chalet on top. On the way we walked around the Lac aux Castors, which was a great little detour. On top of Mont Royal there is the greatest...More
This place is big so be prepared to spend at least a whole day if you really want to explore it. It has tons of little trails and parks, many different views of the city and beautiful spots to take pictures.
In summer is amazing...More
Montreal was named for this hilly highland, where the tallest spot in the city overlooks its most extensive parkland. The greenspace of Parc du Mont-Royal is an outdoorsman's dream, with hiking trails and nature walks that cater to every season and level of athlete. In the winter, cross-country skiers, tobogganers, and ice skaters don their equipment by Beaver Lake and its pavilion, while the warmer months bring families and
competitors to the pitches of Jeanne-Mance Park for tennis, soccer, football, baseball, volleyball, or a dip in the community pool. A perfect spot for a stroll or a picnic, the forest foliage is dotted with sculpture art and offers views of some of Mont-Royal's oldest edifices, the towering St. Joseph's Oratory and the mausoleums of Notre-Dame-des-Neiges. Home to musical celebrations and twilight snowshoeing alike, visit here to walk, write, rest, think, or just be.
