I visited in December. It was nice to get away from the city. If your driving there are many pay-for parking lots. I saw bus shelters so I think the local buses travel along the mountain route as well. Great place to take photos and it was very peaceful. No entry fee or admission.

Mount Royal park is just in the middle of the Island of Montreal and is a calm haven to take refuge in, whenever you want to escape from the city, being IN the city. It has I believe the highest spot in the city, around 250 m. There is the George-Cartier monument, a lookout chalet and the Beaver lake, nice... More

We were poor but we always forgot about it when we got there it was so peaceful I remember it as it was just yesterday. The years have passed but... More

We were dying for a bit of nature amongst the city, and thus headed to Mont Royal. We went up the stairs, and came down the path, looping to the summit, chalet, and over to Beaver Lake. It was a sweet atmosphere in the winter over at Beaver Lake - music, people ice skating - but also very crowded at... More

Nice views from Mount Royal. However there was a parking lot up there that had a weird vibe. It was filled for some reason in the middle of the day with locals blasting different genres of music out of their car trunks. It was like a day time night club or something up there. They were harmless but still.

Being out of country and having a family member get seriously ill, our trip was cut short and only allowed for 3 hours to visit Mont Royal . . . Enough for us to hunger for more! Runner, biker, hiker, outdoor enthusiast, take your gear! Lots of trails for running, biking and hiking, not to mention, an easy walk to... More

We took a winter tour with Fitz and Follwell which included ( if wanting) ice skating, tubing, snowshoeing, and a walking tour. We had a wonderful time snowshoeing through the forest with Shea. The views of Montreal from the summit are beautiful. A must see place!!

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.
