Was there on Saturday around 9pm. Parking was not easy as usual. But once we parked, and started to walk towards the lookout side, we saw 5 raccoons around the garbage cans. They seem to be not worried about people and would walk amongst them! Then we started to see more and more raccoons! like 6 there, 3 here, 7... More

I was fortunate to have a beautiful and not-too-warm August day for my hike up Mont Royal. My approach was from the western end, first trekking up through the Cimetière Notre-Dame-des-Neiges -- the most impressive cemetery I've been to, and I say that as someone not normally fond of cemeteries as well as a native of Arlington, VA. I meandered,... More

If you are in Montreal, it is well worth the visit, great spot for some pictures. Usually make two or three trips a year, even though I m a local. Tam Tams are a great thing to experience as well.

Definitely go to Mount Royal for the view and to just enjoy the outdoors. We came early in the morning with some of Montreal's best bagels and some coffee and enjoyed a little picnic.

Great for a picnic--tables provided, great people-watching included--and a short hike/walk in the woods. Highlight of our trip!

I recommend bringing A park map with you so that you know where you can take shortcuts up or down, vs following thr long circuitous paths.

Easy to get to via Metro & bus. Short walk from the bus stop. There is a secondary viewpoint if you are on the east side.

If you like steps or cardio the client the top is definitely going to be the thing for you! I'm pretty fit but I certainly felt like I done a climb. Regardless to view from the top is exceptional and there's also the Chalet which is interesting building and has details of the history inside. The main hall of the... More

Staying in Parc du Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Parc du Mont-Royal
Montreal was named for this hilly highland, where the tallest spot in the city overlooks its most extensive parkland. The greenspace of Parc du Mont-Royal is an outdoorsman's dream, with hiking trails and nature walks that cater to every season and level of athlete. In the winter, cross-country skiers, tobogganers, and ice skaters don their equipment by Beaver Lake and its pavilion, while the warmer months bring families and competitors to the pitches of Jeanne-Mance Park for tennis, soccer, football, baseball, volleyball, or a dip in the community pool. A perfect spot for a stroll or a picnic, the forest foliage is dotted with sculpture art and offers views of some of Mont-Royal's oldest edifices, the towering St. Joseph's Oratory and the mausoleums of Notre-Dame-des-Neiges. Home to musical celebrations and twilight snowshoeing alike, visit here to walk, write, rest, think, or just be.
