The hike to the top of Mont Royal was a little lengthy but definitely a good one. I needed the exercise anyway hehe. But the view from Chalet du Mont Royal is AMAZING. You can see over almost the entire city and the venue is beautiful. Such amazing architecture and space and it was SO clean. It's like Canadians actually... More

Fun Montrealers call it the Mountain. No one from Western Canada would be impressed, but it is the only mountain in town! Dancing to tam tams on Sundays, wandering by the medievalists practising swordplay up the hill (plastic swords, mainly) or watching the tightrope artists strewn between the trees, Mont Royal is a much loved gem in the heart of...

I'm so glad we had a car at our disposal because our drive around Mont Royal was a special treat. We were even entertained by a large group of Racoons at the overlook.

The drive up Mont Royal is definitely worth it. Panoramic views of the city. Beautiful parks. A nice walk up as well!

Walking up the many steps at Mont Royal is good exercise. I wish I had something like this near my home. The walk up to the Chalet is nice, and you are rewarded with a nice view. It was fun to watch people running up the steps, or hopping up the steps. If you do that every day, you'll surely... More

What you can love about Mont Royal are the many eclectic shops and the consignment shops. There is something for everyone and the vibe is very hip and cutting edge. There are gems of cafes and restaurants for every taste. For the bar crowd there are several very interesting places where it is a literal melting pot of cultures, ethnic... More

Mont Royal has a nice panoramic view of the city and is worth the walk from the parking lot. You'll be walking up hill on the way to the view, but it is on a paved path for about 8-10 minutes to get to the view point. There were lots of people out when we were there on a Saturday... More

From the park it's possible to have an astonishing view of the city, but while I was there there were many cars with loud music and many people smoking marijuana... The view is great, I took awesome pictures, but I didn't feel comfortable there at all.

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.
