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.

This is a beautifully designed urban park with two large linked ponds, fountain and waterfalls. We walked through in the early evening after dark and it was quite busy with joggers, dog walkers, bikers and strollers. Although not brightly lit, it felt safe and was close to a large police station. It is home to the open air Théâtre de... More

One summer morning I bought some sandwiches and went to the lake at Lafontaine park, which was close to my hostel. It is a nice park with big trees, thick grass and benches around the lake. I saw people jogging, walking their babies or dogs. Some were reading, others sleeping in the grass. It was a quiet, peaceful experience with... More

Lafontaine park is a lovely oasis in Montreal. It is well kept and seems to be extremely popular with locals who like to picnic there. When we went it was summer, and it looked like anyone who wanted to have a nice time brought a bottle of wine and some food and made a nice picnic at the park.

A very well planned and maintained park. it's located pretty much in the center of the city, but because it middle part is lower than the edges (I guess that was part of the plan to have a pond over there), once you get inside, you're pretty much isolated from the city by that wall around you, so it stays...

A nice green space where you can listen to lots of people playing music, theres also a playgroud, and a grill zone. Its calm during the week and lots of people go there for the weekend. Nice for a run
