Montréalers are proud of their "mountain," Mount Royal. Though it's more like a large hill in the heart of Montreal, Mount Royal still draws anyone in search of a little greenery and space.

The mountain is the site of Mount Royal Park, the work of New York Central Park designer Frederick Law Olmsted. It's a sprawling, leafy playground that's perfect for cycling, jogging, horseback riding, picnicking; in winter, miles of paths and trails draw cross-country skiers and snowshoers.

On clear days, you can enjoy panoramic views from the Kondiaronk lookout near Chalet du Mont Royal, a grand old white villa that hosts big-band concerts in summer; or from the Observatoire de l'Est, a favorite rendezvous spot for lovebirds. It takes about 30 minutes to walk between the two. En route you'll spot the landmark Cross of Montréal, which is illuminated at night.

Other features of the park include Lac des Castors (Beaver Lake), a favorite spot for sunbathers, a sculpture garden, a lush forest, with numerous sets of stairs, and two cemeteries.

Practical Info

Mount Royal is located a short walk north of downtown Montreal, and is easily accessible by public transportation. The entrance to the park is at the corner of rue Peel and avenue des Pins.

The park is easy to explore, and small enough where you won’t get lost. To get to the top of the mountain, hearty souls can take the stairs, while those who prefer a more leisurely pace can take the switchback bridle path.
