Westmount is the predominantly English area of the island of Montreal, though French people have been steadily moving in for the last 20 years or so. It is mostly reisidential, and has some of the most beautiful. Victorian mansions you will see anywhere in Canada. The parks are also spectacularly beautiful and peaceful.

Westmount is actually a gorgeous part of Montreal. It has many boutiques and you will love walking down Green avenue. Westmount is mostly residential with the most beautiful home you will ever see. Nice area to drive in or to sit in a park and enjoy the peaceful place.

I visited Westmount Park and Murray Hill Park, also called St Georges Park. Wonderful for children and adults alike. At the top of Murray Park you can get a wonderful view of the river and south shore area. If you choose to walk further up the hill; from Westmount Avenue, north; past the Boulevard, you eventually get to the Westmount... More

I like Westmount. The park is unique, there are concerts on Sunday during summer, lots of trees, little lake, little waterfall, ducks, bike path, children area, small soccer field... small park with lots of fun stuff. Victoria Village is always attractive, with plenty of stores. You can enjoy a nice walk/window shopping on Sherbrooke. Of course, the snobs will take... More

Not being a Westmount resident, I can be unbiased here. The quartier is just lovely. If you are from out of town - drive up Victoria - from Sherbrooke - turn right on Sunnyside and head higher and higher. The road veers to the right - but stay on Sunnyside. Now take Belvedere on your left to the top of... More

If you think you're a snob but don't really care for quality, than this is the part of town for you. Over-priced restaurants abound. There's maybe one good place in the whole neighbourhood, it's not a terrible place to eat but it's certainly not good, and in a city like Montreal, where there are so many good options, why would...

It is not Bel Air, nor Rodeo Drive. It is not Avenue George V, nor does it lead to the Eiffel Tower. It is not Worth Avenue nor does it end at a beach. It doesn't claim it either for it does not have the retail, the quality or the services that those places have. It does have some nice... More

If you want to be in a part of town where English is predominant, then Westmount is your choice. The stores are nice and the restaurants mostly OK, but it's not French Montreal. However, the Metro grocery in Westmount is about the best in own and they do have very different things in this store compared to the others. I... More

The villas in W. are sure expensive and the streets steep, leading to an amazing view from the Mount Royal. Take a hike up there and you' see all of this almost 375 years old metropolis. You will not be sorry and you can get there by car as well and park it, then take a short stroll up to... More
