One of the great surprises of Montreal is its extremely creative urban planning, particularly its use of "green space". Not far from Mount Royal Park, La Fontaine Park is a destination in its own right. It gives the area that truly neighborhood feel that one rarely experiences in a city.

quiet place to sit and watch small seagulls fly about. Looks like a french Paris park. nothing exciting, a place to rest if going from one place to another.

People tend to overlook this park but I find it one of the best in Montreal because it's right by the subway, easy to get there and it's so relaxing especially early in the morning and when the sun is setting. I love sitting by the water and watch the ducks.

If you want to rub shoulders with the locals picnicking, making music, doing yoga, walking their dogs, chilling -- this is the spot. A really well-used garden in the heart of the city with a coloured fountain that comes into play on summer nights which gives it its name. A nice resto ons-site too.

Always go there when in Montreal. should not be missed on the weekends. Attracts locals and less locals alike. There are many shows during summer;from movies to classical recitals. It worth a visit, it is beautiful.

Park Lafontaine is a Montreal's landmark for more than a century. Generations of Montrealers were and are still used to go there to relax, take a walk, have a pic nic beween friends, lay down and take advantage of the sun or just watch the calm waters or the two artificial lakes. There is also a nice restaurant in the... More

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

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.
