Mon Royal is a must see on any visit to Montreal. Spectacular panoramic views of the city and river.

Easy to reach by bus, by subway, by taxi you can also use your personal car as there are a lot of parkings all around the park. Le Lac des castors (Beaver lake) is well decorated with beautiful birds, trees, plants and flowers.... More
We were walking in this area beside very cold, of course, normal weather of -9 degree c during a midday towards end of November 2013. It was amazingly historical and we felt worth walking despite the troubling weather. We for sure visit the area again during a summer.
