La Fontaine Park is a pleasant enough place to visit and spend some downtime relaxing. It is a well maintained and safe park to visit and easy to wander around through. That said, it did not stand out in my mind and reminded me of other urban parks.

A pretty standard park area. Nice to walk through and well-maintained. A pleasant green area in the city.

Parc la Fontaine is an oasis of green that you can stroll through as a respite from the hectic urban jungle. It has some small lakes and is also part of the bike path system so be aware of cyclists as you enter / leave on the west side of the park. It also has a Bixi rack close to... More

Small park, nothing special except a small lake with a fountain in the middle. You may want to go there to exercise, but I am sure there are plenty of better places in the city.

On a sunny warm July day walked to the park. It is a nice park to stroll, read a book, or picnic. The place to go for peace and quiet.

This park is large enough to get in a long run if you are ok with lapping the park a few times. It is best for a stroll and a chance to be with folks from Montreal who are playing tennis, softball, kickboxing, day camping with tons of kids and counselors, and just chilling a bit. There are clean bathrooms... More

The park is almost always full of cyclists, runners, picnickers, yoga groups, sports teams, kids and couples just walking around the wonderful green space. Fabulous location in the heart of the Plateau. Used to take kids there to the petting zoo, or wading pool.

Good place to take a stroll, wind down, and Breathe in the Fresh Outside Air. Stop and unwind, take some friends with you as you enjoy this Landmark of Montreal.

Want to relax and enjoy a nice afternoon with friends or family, the kids etc. La Fontaine Park is large, safe, clean and tree lined right in the city... not many such parks in central areas of US cities except NY.

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
