About
This park is one of Montreal's largest greenspaces and is a great place for admiring a wide variety of flora and fauna. Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the same person behind New York's Central Park, Mount Royal Park boasts miles of trails and superb views of the city. Here, you can stroll down the tree-lined paths and recharge with a picnic on the grass by Beaver Lake. You can also enjoy outdoor activities year-round, such as canoeing in the summer and skiing in the wintertime. There’s a mild climb to reach the viewing area at the top. Alternatively, you can hop on a public bus to reach the peak. – Tripadvisor

The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Very nice place to stroll around in. Your weather may vary. The view from the chalet area is grand.

Beautiful and nice walk! Note that the St Joseph Orator (basilica) in the photo is far from Mont Royal. You must visit the nearby pond/ lake which Is beautiful and well maintained.

We took the train and 165 bus to the entrance off Chem de la Cote des Neiges. From there it was a pleasant walk to the pond and then up to the top where we took in the view. You could see the mountains in the distance. We had some coffee and tea at the chalet and sat outside. Even though it was a Monday morning, there were a fair number of people at the top. We then continued up the hill to see the Mount Royal Cross. The climb was not too strenuous and the paths were well marked.

Worth a day to visit and hike Mount Royal to the top. The trails are relatively tame and the viw when you reach the top is superb. Highly recommended!

Easy walk up wide, tiny-graveled path. Paid parking, $6CAD we paid for 1.5-2 hours. View of the city is at the Chalet. You can see essentially the whole city. Great view. Local tourism office said it's a great place to watch the sunrise, though we went mid-day. We also did the loop to the summit. Not much to see, mostly in the trees, but nice wide, graveled path.

Beautiful park with stunning views of downtown Montreal. You can drive to the top and park there and walk around to explore.

Climbed up Mont Royal in the morning which was a smart move. You go up either by a series of steep wooden walkways or a long circular path. Take it easy if you are not in good shape as it is tiring. At the top is a square and a cafeteria and there are great views over Montreal which the added bonus that the walk down is much easier. The park is also very nice and worth a walk amongst the trees. A good way to spend 2-3 hours.

This is a great place to spend time while visiting Montreal. We just hiked to the top for a view of the city which is very beautiful. There are also many other activities around the are to enjoy in all seasons. Since there was still snow, many people were on snow bikes or cross country skies. Know if you go to top, it is a hike with many stairs but it is worth the view.

I walked up here from the city during the winter and it was loads of fun. Outdoor ice skating and sledding. I didn’t feel like doing those so I watched. It just felt like I was away on a mountain retreat and not in the middle of a bustling city.

Hands down the place you want to go if you're looking for the best views of the city. It's quite the panoramic lookout!
