Took the bus #11 from the metro station. Short walk to the Chalet Mont Royal. Views are amazing! Would not recommend going to see the croix unless you have time as there's nothing really to see.

Great reliving a childhood memory where I learned to ski, found my orientation to where my cousins live, saw various exercise classes in the park, and enjoyed the view!

We really enjoyed walking up Mont (Mount) Royal to view Downtown Montreal. The view was well worth the schlep on a hot sunny day. What a missed opportunity however as there was no decent restaurant/cafe facilities on arrival. We were not impressed with the vending machines inside the building, that were not fully functioning on the day we visited. We... More

a wonderful place to visit on a nice day. There are many walking paths throughout the park, but I highly recommend going to the Chalet for the overlook of the city -- it's a great view!

First time visiting this place, on the way to St. Joseph's Oratory. Although the view is beautiful, it is not as breathtaking as the one(s) from the Oratory, because (obviously) it is not as high. Worth going though.

This is one of my favourite spots to just relax ! A leisurely walk on one of several tree lined paths and a great lookout overlooking downtown Montreal is so soothing for the spirit & soul . Summer or Winter ! In the middle of the city and easy public transit access . This is another must see in Montreal... More

This is a really nice park. The highlight of the park, though, is the viewpoint. They have a large parking lot on the north side. It's about a 7 minute walk to the viewpoint, where you can see the city center. It is said that there is a height limit on the buildings to not exceed the height 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.
