One of Montréal’s largest greenspaces with great biodiversity, Mount Royal Park is a lush landscape where visitors can expect an array of public activities, from discovery walks in the summer to snowshoe excursions in the winter.

As the City of Montréal’s nonprofit partner in Mount Royal Park, Les amis de la montagne operates visitor services about what to see and do in the park, runs outdoor equipment rental and food services, and presents a full range of cultural, educational and recreational programs.

This park, meaning “the mountain,” is conveniently located 1.3 miles from the nearest Amtrak station, not far from the downtown Montreal area.

Developed in 1876, the almost 500-acre park was designed by Central Park engineer, Frederick Law Olmstead. Visitors engage year-round in activities ranging from bird watching and dog-walking to boating and tobogganing!

“Another must do in Montreal. Either take the stairs to the top, walk the path, or you can drive to the the top. There’s a chateau with refreshments, beautiful gardens and a stunning view of Montreal. I’ve walked to the top many times over the years and have never been disappointed.”
