Mount Royal, Montreal's Most Visited Park
The Mount Royal Park Right Besides the North Side of Montreal Downtown
Mount Royal, Montreal, Quebec, H2W 1S8.
Walk through this abundant urban forest, the largest park on the Island of Montreal.
There is a beat on the mountain with all these tourists mixed with locals, runners, calèche, mounted police, bikers, family with kids and dogs...
There is a lake that becomes an icing ring in the winter, and the belvedere on the city that you might enjoy more than once during the day or the evening when all the skyscrapers are illuminated.
One key features of the Mount Royal Park is its 103 ft illuminated Cross overlooking Downtown.
The initial plan of the park was originally designed by Fredrerick Law Olmsted, the same that co-designed New York's Central Park.
