    Early morning sunrise experience 18 minute walk from the Sofitel Hotel up to Belvedere Kondiaronk View Point ! There are many many options to choose from but if your desire is to make a " quick strike " and experience a beautiful sunrise this hike is for you ! It requires sets of steps to get to but well worth the climb ! Sunrise on a Sunday surprisingly not crowded !

    The Garden is huge and the different sections had been fitted with lights appropriate to the various cultures (First Nation, Chinese, Japanese, etc.) Highly recommend it because it includes access to the indoor greenhouses which were also amazing.

    As you walk along the river, you will find some historic marks that explain the area and what was once here. This part of the port still serves the cruise and tourism industry. There are things to do here and some green space. Nearby are lots of cafes and restaurants. Good place on a sunny day.

    This is an attraction I will definitely visit again. The only issue we had was finding the main entrance because of the ongoing construction at the botanical gardens.

    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.

    Didn’t have the time and energy to tour the entire park on foot so we took the short cut and did the 45 min Discovery Ride. For $14, you ride on an electric cart and it drove you around the whole park with a tour guide and you get to be on the formula one track and see almost everything in the park within this short time. A very comfy ride and time saving. Park is easy to get to by the metro, then you can take the ferry to Old Port or Longueuil for another relaxing experience.

    Visiting the south end of the Lachine Canal provides a glimpse into the evolution of the canals. The north end (at the port) provides a little more. There are parts restored and visible, others not so much, since the entire canal fell into disuse after the St. Lawrence Seaway with its larger locks and channels was opened in 1959-1963.

    This was a fun museum to visit. It is well done and the history was interesting to learn. We were particularly fascinated with Benjamin Franklin's visit to Chateau Ramezay and to see his signature on a letter in the showcase. Glad we took the time to stop in and explore.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    The landscaping is immaculate in this pleasant square right in the middle of downtown. Important buildings all around taking advantage of the sunlight and green views from this square. Places to sit and eat lunch. Parking garage underneath.

    We were lookig for a good park for a walk or hike and tried this one out. It seemed a bit too open and flat, but we managed a short walk, nonetheless. The park also contains playing fields and a couple of stadiums.
