Too crowded. If you want to be in a real park, I suggest le Parc Maisonneuve. It's three times the size, and have the feeling of being in nature right in the city.

What a lovely park. I sat and enjoyed the duck pond for quite a while. A calm cool oasis in the heat of the city. Better signage to the public bathrooms would be helpful.
