Such a great decision to spend Sunday afternoon in Mount Royal Park. When you arrived at the lake, you feel as if it is a version of Central Park (New York City). Then as you decend up the paths, enjoying the nature, you reach the...More
Below the official Mount Royal Park area are lots of hiking and biking trails worth spending a few hours traversing, by foot or bike. You'll reach the staircase to the top, and there are many, but it's worth it. Once you get to the top...More
Besides great views of the city from the overlook and beautiful flowers around the chalet, Mont Royal has miles of wooded trails and gravel paths for walkers, bikers, and runners. We walked the Promenade Fleuve-Montagne from the Old City to the summit. It was a...More
I entered the Park via the Peel Street entrance and climbed all the steps up to the observation point. It was well worth the effort! I was rewarded with spectacular views of downtown Montreal on a lovely, sunny Saturday afternoon. The steps were not too...More
A beautiful drive into this park, but watch out for cyclists! The parking lot was non-invasive, yet handy. At the primary overlook, a well designed area allowed for multiple views and accommodated several hundred people. The trails were also thumbs up. 👍
We hiked to the top on an 84-degree humid day in September, but we were never really sure where we were going or if we got there (at least until we asked about 10 different local citizens). It's a fairly challenging hike despite there being...More
It's a bit of a hike to get to the top of Mount Royal Park, but the views of Montreal are worth the effort. It you can, use a guide who can point out many of the surrounding areas and describe the island of Montreal...More
High up,with gorgeous views on a clear view. Best wear comfortable footwear as this park can be a very long walk indeed, depending on the route one choses to take. Trees and squirrels galore. Many steps to climb, so be fit or pace yourself.
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.
