A hidden gem, close to Old Montreal, for gorgeous views across the river to Old Montreal. Parking is available and close by you'll find the Habitat 67 buildings and you can bicycle to the Ste Helene islands. Don't forget to watch the surfers riding a permanent wave behind the Habitat 67. The spot is well hidden, but popular, just follow... More

First night in Montreal, found this hidden gem. Only downside was the poor management of the parking facility.

This small park is generally found by architect buffs who walk out to look at Habitat '67 on Ile de Havre. Tiny park at the end of the promontory with an amazing view of the Old Port and City of Montreal. Very peaceful and very green. Recommend getting there by bicycle (rental Bixi) and bring a picnic!

This is a well hidden jewel and gem in Montreal. Know for the river surfers, early morning fishers and family coming to picnic while they catch fish... or best place to watch the fire works on Canada Day...

This is the greatest park in Montreal. Not many people know about it. Because, of the location. Accessible by car, taxi or bike. Huge parking under the bridge. Everyday cleaning. Toilet open till 9PM. The most romantic view of Montreal at night. At the of that park you feel like beeing on a island between the island of Montreal and... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
