Top ways to experience Mount Royal Park
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Parc du Mont-Royal
Montreal was named for this hilly highland, where the tallest spot in the city overlooks its most extensive parkland. The greenspace of Parc du Mont-Royal is an outdoorsman's dream, with hiking trails and nature walks that cater to every season and level of athlete. In the winter, cross-country skiers, tobogganers, and ice skaters don their equipment by Beaver Lake and its pavilion, while the warmer months bring families and competitors to the pitches of Jeanne-Mance Park for tennis, soccer, football, baseball, volleyball, or a dip in the community pool. A perfect spot for a stroll or a picnic, the forest foliage is dotted with sculpture art and offers views of some of Mont-Royal's oldest edifices, the towering St. Joseph's Oratory and the mausoleums of Notre-Dame-des-Neiges. Home to musical celebrations and twilight snowshoeing alike, visit here to walk, write, rest, think, or just be.

Best views in Montreal
Apr. 2021
I guess this is the ''must see'' attraction for anyone visiting Montreal. The views are great and the get away from the city is nice. Cycle all the way up or take one of the many hiking trails on the mountain. Avoid sunny Saturdays when there are more people than trees on the mountain!

Excellent place for a little hike.
Jul. 2020
Mont-Royal is a fun place to hike and the summit offers tremendous scenery. There is no admission fee and are many entrances scattered throughout a part of the city.

Nice walk
Feb. 2021 • Friends
A nice park in the middle of the city. Good for an easy walk. I would recommending parking on the street and not driving in. Everyone was double parked and all over the place.

A must see
Jan. 2021
If you don’t know what to do and you want to escape the city but don’t have enough time then the Chemin de La Croix is what you’ll be looking for. You forget that the city is around you on this trail and you have one of the most beautiful view on Montreal during the sunset

Best place to see Montreal
Jul. 2020 • Solo
Getting to Mount Royal is both a physical exercise and going to a place from where you have the best view of the entire city. It's a great spot to take memorable photos from the beautiful scenery from atop Mount Royal.

Best part of Montreal
Nov. 2020
My absolute favorite area of Montreal is the Mount Royal Park. Go see the amazing view of the city from the viewpoint balcony. Visit the St. Joseph Oratory for the most beautiful architecture Quebec has to offer. The area is great during summer but also great in winter time for skiing

Love the cross!
Sep. 2020
On the whole, it's a great exercise to walk up. It'll take about 45 mins and we were not certain which route to take and wasted some steps. There was actually a stair to go up but the joggers that we asked were probably locals and had no clues. It was great especially when we reached the top and saw a beautiful cross at the top! This was not mentioned in a lot of the tourist info!
