    Drive around til you find the ice skating rink. There is a toboggan run nearby and cross country skiing . There is a pavilion with a cafe upstairs (with the best hot chocolate I’ve ever had) and equipment rental downstairs. We just watched but it all looked so fun! The ice rink had Xmas trees with lights in the middle and nice music on the speakers .

    My wife and I visited the Old Port during a trip to Montreal and loved it. This port is very similar to Chicago’s Navy Pier. Very nice!

    Excellent look at history in the city. The experience does require guests to engage with the content by listening to the audios. I’d recommend 1 hour or 2 if you’re really into history.

    Part of the Botanical Gardens and stunning. The entire Garden is beautiful (very large in size) and each area represents a different region of the world.

    Spent five days in Montreal, and on my last day before taking my flight home, I visited Parc Jean—Drapeau, It was easy to get to travelling by train. As soon as out of the station that you see the iconic biosphere - this geodesic dome fits in well with nature. It is a museum about the environment. Lush green and vast. I did not spend as long as I would have like to but it is worth a visit.

    I am so upset that I did not discover this part of town until we were at the end of our stay in Montreal. I would have returned many times. Nice long walks with lots of interesting things to look at and lots of historic markers explaining what had been along the Canal. Great for bikes also and some good picnic spots. Plus places for coffee. A gem of the city.

    A really lovely park that does not require you to trudge up a steep hill. It is a major park for the city and much used. Located in the middle of crowded residential areas.

    A bit of a surprise to find these nicely-preserved old houses in an area where things are being torn down as urban renewal continues apace. Lovely and a nice introduction to the Plateau.

    Île de la visitation is a beautiful nature park in Northern Montreal and is an ideal place for a day out or picnic with the family. There are some beautiful trails to do some long walks and do some exercise. There is also some great spots for photos. You will enjoy a visit for sure.

    A beautiful park but is being infested by homeless who are using or shall i say abusing the 420. Smells bad at some part and trashes are everywhere on some part and those part are where these abusers are.(i am not mean to homeless but if they dont have the right attitude in life or try to be then..) chairs and tables are available with some vendors who sell coffees

    Nice park. We visited on a snowy day in March. The trails are well groomed, and marked clearly which ones are from skiers, showshoes and walkers.
    Parking was unexpected fee $7.75 for 2 hours and $9.75 for all day. Easy to pay with credit card. Easier just to pay for all day.

    Its amazingly beautiful. Things to take into consideration before planning a trip to this place:

    1. Carry mosquito repellent
    2. Its free of cost
    3. The frequency of the public transport is not very good

    This is one of the best places of Montréal, very quiet place in the east, big park to do biking, rollerblade, running, picnic, yoga, read, you name it. (Except BBQ) this is one of the Montréal biggest parks.

    Is close to the Pie-IX metro station, and several buses lines, also they have the Botanic Garden of Montréal, Japanese Garden and close to the soccer stadium and the Olympic stadium.

    If you looking a quiet place to relax in the middle of the city this is your place.

    Please maintain the park clean as usual, take the garbage with you or use the container, also recicle as much you can.

    And last but not least if you are going to hear music please be prudent and respectful with other.

    Enjoy the visit.
