Right in the midst of a bustling city-Montreal, you can find peace and nature in the Parc Lafontaine. Wether individually, as a couple or for a family with kids, you will find all you need to spend a day basking in nature's wonders. Kids playground, an artificial lake, ducks, birds and a fountain are all there for pleasure of the... More

There are a big pond in the west side, many tennis courts on the west side and other things in between, such as a baseball field two volleyball grounds, a dog park, a large... More

Always full and joyful. You'll mostly find adults drinking, but it's truly an a amazing place to relax and have a good time with friends. There's a well known restaurant called la banquise right next to it where you can find all sorts of poutine recipes (They even have a vegan one)

La Fontaine Park is a wonderful spot to stroll, relax, or sit and people watch. We enjoyed a cool, quiet hour here after walking the streets of Plateau Mont Royal.

La Fontaine park is great during the summer to relax with friends and enjoy a little picnic as the city hustles and bustles around you. Find a spot near the fountain in the centre-north and take a stroll around the lake. Or enjoy watching the many games of bocci ball and tennis that take place on the east side. A... More

We had the fantastic fortune to stay in a pied a terre opposite this Parc for 5 nights. It is one of the largest parks in Montreal snd only 20 minute walk from Downtown. It provides a variety of trails, cycling, water and picnic areas in a superb peaceful state (given proximity to busy roads). A real 'lung' of the... More

Our most recent visit to Parc La Fontaine allowed us to stroll around the pond, and have a bit of a picnic. The park is always popular, the facilities are good (ex. Espace La Fontaine cultural café).

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.
