La Fontaine Park is set between two busy streets, but when you are there you really don't feel the city as much. And the park is great come summer or winter. Be lazy in the sun go for a stroll biking during the summer months and come winter be active go ice skating and enjoy the park as well.

I always loved visiting Parc La Fontaine as part of my daily routine in Montreal. Since I always stay in the Plateau neighborhood, this park is a 10 minute walk from my friend's house near rue St Denis. I play soccer there in summer and ice hockey at the rink the municipality erects every winter, like in so many neighborhood... More

Beautiful landscapes and a nice lake in the center, but better be ready for a ton of joggers, a well-used bike path to the west and a littering of hippie types smoking questionable cigarettes all throughout the park. Still it is a safe and interesting spot to take a stroll or sit and take some sun.

Many say that Mont Royal is the best park in Montreal,but for me La Fontaine Park is. It is not as crowed as other parks and has a very relaxing feel. Sit on the grass and read a book in the middle of the city. Each time I travel to Montreal this park is one my list of places to... More

Beautiful and serene. A lovely place to sit with your significant other and do nothing but enjoy each other. The park sits down from street level so it is very quiet and peaceful.

Wonderful neighborhood park with several ponds in the middle. You get a sense of belonging here rather than a tourist.

Only walked through to go to lunch, but we could have spent the day here. Many people that we passed were doing just that. Soccer, picnics, napping ,reading a book ,having a family get together. Nice place to hang out and relax. We stayed at a BNB on the edge of the parc and if we go back we'll spend... More

Beautiful large (several blocks) park within the city, lots of space to picnic and benches to watch ducks in the large pond. Large fenced play area for children. Lots of shade trees and pleasant walkways.

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.
