Mount Royal is Montréal's best recreational spot for the entire family. Mount Royal is used during the whole year. Summer time brings lots of activities on the mountain where you can see the ducks and fish in Beaver Lake, take long strolls in the forest...More

Nice views, but unless it is Summer it is sort of a drive by destination. Montreal has better parks for just walking or site-seeing.

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

I believe they have paddle boat at the lake, no river and lake is to small for kayak.
