I went to see a very excentric schizophrenic yet amusing patient there that wanted me to ''free her', and hire me as a lawyer. While there, I snooped around and was awed by the idyllic terrace around the building and the view of the St Lawrence below. Some of the river view is hindered today.This was once a grand mansion...

Little remains of the original glory of Ravenscrag, other than the exterior shell of the building, and a series of black & white photo's that adorn the main hallway inside. Built by Sir Hugh Allen in 1863, you can see pictures of it at http://cac.mcgill.ca/campus/buildings/Allan_Memorial_Institute.html Try a Google search on "Ravenscrag mansion", and it should pop up as the 4th...

Staying in Parc du Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
