As a family historian I was searching for a grave of a long lost relative. I took the scenic route from Redpath Crescent up many steep flights of stairs onto the wonderful view at the Chalet Du Mont Real. This route is strenuous, uphill stairs, most of the way or a longer but maybe gentler uphill walk round on a... More

What a beautiful cemetery. If your going to visit graves of loved ones I suggest emailing before to find out the sections and lot number. If you don't have those it would be near impossible to find who you are looking for. I was very fortunate to stop by the office and he lady working the front desk was a... More

Nice place to visit when the weather is right but it's so large you might consider leaving a trail of bread crumbs starting at the entrance. Kidding aside, it is so large you will see joggers on the property. Roughly 250,000 interments with 42 famous people. If famous interments are your thing then the Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery next to it might... More

Driving by on your way to the observatory spot is more than enough. There is no need to devote a whole lot of time for it. The cross, and the hikes around the park are a lot more interesting.

This is a very large graveyard. There are diverse styles of stones and little "neighbourhoods" of "residents" including ethnic and religious sections. Some stones toward the front were incorporated into hedgerows, which I thought were lovely. There is a large and beautifully sculpted weeping angel toward the top of the hill (too bad for us that there was a couple... More

Weird as it is I have always enjoyed going to cemeteries and looking around. There is plenty of room for riding your bike, walking or running. The people who have been buried here must have been very wealthy because the beauty of the grave sites is astonishing.

If I understand correctly, Mount Royal Cemetery is the largest cemetery in North America. It's seriously massive and old. You can drive through the cemetery starting from the top of the mountain and working your way down towards Rue Cote-Des-Neiges.

Definitely a beautiful cemetery. Great bike/walking paths to choose from, and the cemetery is always quiet, so you could even go here to do some thinking on your own. Of course, it is still a cemetery, so if you're not comfortable with those things, I wouldn't recommend it, but if you don't really mind, it is definitely a beautiful place.

Peaceful spot on top of a mountain surround by a park in the middle of a metropole. Many local celebrities and extremely beautiful statues can be found resting quietly under the numerous old and majestic trees.

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.
