You can ice skate here and its not on a traditional rink. Its pretty cool I visited in the winter and the temperature was quite cold so bundle up if you are not skating. Vous pouvez patiner ici - et n'est pas une patinoire traditionnelle....More

Sunday afternoon walking through the park and experiencing the ducks and the people suntanning was really great and unexpected in the heart of the city. People were very friendly and playing instruments lazily in the sun....Really enjoyed it!!

One of the prettiest city parks we have been in. Very clean, safe and beautiful. Designated bike paths. Walked through it every day on way to metro or restaurants and felt safe at all times.

A huge park, the largest in Montreal! It has a beautiful lake with ducks swimming in it and a water fountain in the middle. A very calm and relaxing place to be at any time, specially at night under the stars!

This park was the finish line for the Rock and Roll marathon of Montreal. Beautiful lake. Saw my first white squirrel. Like a mini-Central Park.

I fell in love with this park - so calm and relaxing! We were biking with a friend, and stopped there to rest at the lake. The weather was great, so we sat down on the grass and enjoyed the view.

I didn't find this park worth the time it took to get there. The paths were pretty decrepit and there were a lot of sketchy people about.

Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke
shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract
locals and transplants alike, making it one of the
city's most diverse and distinctly authentic

painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from
the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that
