We walked all around the outside of the cemetery while coming down from Mount Royal. This is an impressive cemetery as it is very large (over 165 acres with 200,000 “residents”) and very well kept. Mont Royal Cemetery Is located on the North Slope of Mount Royal. Mount Royal Cemetery became a beautiful garden on the mountain with the romantic... More

We drove throughout the cemetery. It was interesting because the different cultures and religions had different sections. It is massive: we needed a GPS to get out of it.

I am a strong believer that we pray for the living. For when you pass away God decides and of story, Its The architectural structure that inspires me. When I go there its really to take pictures if you love photography this is one of the places you can take good pic.

I'm not a fan of walking in cemeteries but I had to pass through Mont Royal Cemetary during a corporate event in the area. I was pleasantly surprised as to how beautiful the grounds are and more so in the fall where the vibrant and colourful leaves add so much character. It was truly memorable ...

I went to visit my relatives and came home with a story. Sitting on my future grave in the spring of 2007, my mind went wild in such a beautiful place filled with my ancestors bones. When I returned home, I started writing the story and my novel "Ghost Generations" was born. The whole story takes place in the cemetery.... More

I was first here in 1995, before the days of GPS. I should actually say, close to it. I asked for directions from a road crew and they played the language game with me. I never found it. Now I have since been here three times and know my way around here. Mark you GPS Unit BEFORE you leave the... More

As a family historian I was searching for a grave of a long lost relative. I took the scenic route from Redpath Crescent up many steep flights of stairs onto the wonderful view at the Chalet Du Mont Real. This route is strenuous, uphill stairs, most of the way or a longer but maybe gentler uphill walk round on a... More

What a beautiful cemetery. If your going to visit graves of loved ones I suggest emailing before to find out the sections and lot number. If you don't have those it would be near impossible to find who you are looking for. I was very fortunate to stop by the office and he lady working the front desk was a... 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.
