“A nice park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

This park was near our flat. Lots of runners and people walking their dogs. Nothing too amazing or mind blowing, but a well groomed and pretty park. Good place to play tennis as well.

“A place to relax”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

Great for strolling around on a fine day. Not a huge park, and no stunning landmarks. Just a pleasant area of greenery. Not far to the west is a good area to find simple fare at the neighbourhood restaurants.

“very relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

a very relaxing place to sit down or just have a walk, especially if you just had a large poutine at la banquise. i learned how to use my camera by practicing in the park this past summer. it seems to be a popular place(just my observation) with poets and musicians and writers etc. anyways, its close to both metro sherbrooke and mont-royal and also has a bike track.

“Relaxing Afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

Great park within waliking distance from the Metro. Found a great pond with benches aligning the perimeter and sat with a good book for an hour. Felt very safe to be there and enjoyed the beauty of Montreal

“Very pretty park, great place to relax”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

This park has a nice large lake and is good place for walking, people watching, and having a picnic (we saw so many people picnicing!). We went here because it was a short walk from our hotel and my husband is interested in landscape photography. I am not sure if this is a must do when visiting Montreal, but we enjoyed it.
