The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Le Plateau Mont-Royal
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 experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.

A really lovely park that does not require you to trudge up a steep hill. It is a major park for the city and much used. Located in the middle of crowded residential areas.

A very nice park in the Plateau neigbourhood of Montreal. It appeared to be safe. Joggers, bikers and family enjoying this patch of green in the middle of the city.
When we visited some sections were closed because they were obviously doing some work to renovate part of the lake shore.
Still it was very pleasant enjoying some fresh air and shade during the sweltering heat wave we had that day.
Plus the Plateau is the nice place to visit anyway.

In the heart of Montreal on a major corridor you will find this nature lovers park. Great place to stroll, run, bike or exercise.

Ohmygod, I sat here for 3 hours. It was during the Fall in Sept 2019 so it was not hot neither it was cold. I found this park by chance when I was looking for something else. If you asked me why I can sit there for so long.. firstly, the weather was so comfortable. Cool and not too windy. Secondly, it is safe. Sitting down at this bench with the full view of the lake, people hanging out and observing those beautiful swans seems like a good idea to spend my time during vacation to relax.

La Fontaine Park is an epitome of a very well-planned public park. It is safe haven for the locals in Montreal to gather, socialize, play sports and just relax on their own. The parc is huge and easily accessible on public transport. It was a place I go frequently when in Montreal.

Designed by the same guy who did New Yorks Central Park, this park is full of well-planed zones, the perfect ratio of grass to mature trees for shade, water features and sports fields. As soon as the first bud emerges on the trees, the park begins to swell with jugglers, musicians, picnickers, joggers, cyclists, families, friends, hammock-nappers, slack-liners, circus performers, yoga groups, birthday parties, bbq's meetups and more. It's a fantastic place to pause and enjoy the day, people watch, feed the ducks, maybe smoke a joint or share a bottle of wine with friends, whatever you do to enjoy summer this is the place to do it. No matter how many people are there, there always seems to be a free place to sit and soak in some sun or rest in the shade - it's so great to see a public space taken advantage of so well. Plus there seems to be a great symbiosis of people who collect bottles and cans for the deposit $ so the park is pretty immaculate too. There is a good level of respect for the park, and everyone seems to enjoy doing activities in their appropriate zone ( theres a more athletic section for baseball, tennis, basketball etc and a more loungey / picnic/ hippie area , and lots of big open spaces for kids to run around safely, there's also a designated dog park area if you want to let your pup off the leash without getting into other peoples lunches - though plenty of people have pets at their picnics, just depends on your dog and what you are there for).

Beautiful park with a lovely lake and many walking trails. The leaves were turning when we visited and we saw hundreds (I’m not exaggerating) of brown squirrels.

Was exploring the city while I was waiting for my Air B&B to be ready. Extremely happy I stumbled upon this park!

Not sure if it should be called public art or a 'folly' or what but kind of impressive to see. However the tree it is made from rots fairly quickly so it may not be there too many more years. I could see fruiting bodies from internal fungi under the bark in a few places so days to see it may be numbered -- when it starts to be a hazard it will have to come down. I took quite a few photos but don't have one to download -- google for it and it should come up.
