This is the nicest place for a leisurely stroll by one of the lakes. Filled with Montrealers, families, runners, bicyclists. A sweet little train ride for children (& parents) is free. This is where neighborhood people come to relax on a Summer's day. There's an outdoor theater but we didn't have time to look into details. Also a super nice... More

What a nice park. There's a beautiful lake and some area to walk around it. Very nice and relaxing view. My favorite park in Montreal.

I spent the morning here just relaxing in the sun with my book. Bring something to lay on and a snack, because you could be here a while. There's nothing else to do except walk around (although it is pretty small) and then RELAX.

Great place to spend a afternoon. Went on a sunny Sunday and it was packed. It was great to see so many people out and about enjoying this great piece of nature in Montreal.

Also, there is a Poutine place on Rachel, the bike expressway to the east, across from the Police-Firestation at the Northeast tip of the park. There is a nice yard where you can eat them fries. No dogs allowed inside though..so go for take-out. Across the street is Galerie Graff , a Coop if you re into making Lithos and... More

Great park to walk, run or ride a bike. You can feel like you are in the countryside. In the spring flowers are blooming.

My boyfriend and I love going to this park, we live a couple blocks away and we take our dogs there often. In the winter, they have an ice rink, and fireworks for the santa clause parade. In the summer its a great place to take a picnic and bottle of wine and spend the afternoon or evening. There's tons... More

On our recent Montreal getaway, Hubby and I enjoyed exploring The Plateau for the first time. This park was a true find, especially for ice skating. We have enjoyed skating in Old Montreal, in Parc Jean Drapeau, and on Lac du Castors in Parc Mont Royal. But this is our new favorite! The walking paths in this park are tree-lined... More

La Fontaine Park is the greatest park in Montreal. An urban park, some kind of Central Park of Montreal.

A quick walk away from the Gay Village, it is a nice park to relax, take a sunbath, enjoy the shade, bike or just watch the ducks. Worth a visit, if you like some green space.

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.
