Nice view, pretty park , healthy walk. Can be missed. Nice place for picnic lunch. We walked down and then to the rue saint Denis district which was a great exploration - nice shopping and restaurants. You get a real flavor for neighborhoods by taking this walk - it is not an easy walk however

Beautiful walk, views. A great break after spending a few days walking the city streets. Easy access -- just head uphill and you'll find an entrance!

We hiked up to Mont Royal. A nice walk up (a bit of an exercise actually) and a good view from the terrace. A nice cafe at the top would be great.

We rented bikes at a little bike shop at 115 W Mont Royal St. and rode up to the peak of Mont Royal. The trek was lovely as the wide path scissored up to the top. Montreal, like most of Quebec, has extensive bike paths and I would recommend exploring with a bike anywhere one travels in Quebec. Mont Royal is no exception. We were at the Chalet in no time looking over the beautiful city - it was magnificent.

I had been here before on foot, so this time I wanted to see it by car. It's such a vast park. Last fall the basin was under construction, so we wanted to check it out now. I can tell you, it's a beautiful pond. It was a very hot day when we were there, so we put our feet in the water to cool off. Plenty of picnic spots overlooking the basin. We drove up to the lookout, but it wasn't a clear day. There were raccoons in the trash, and they were the main attraction. The trash cans were overflowing- kind of a shame really. Doesn't seem to be well maintained. Although there isn't a fee to see the park, you will have to pay to park.
