Surrounded by Montreal City, this park is a gem in center of it all. The view of the city and the St. Lawrence river are wonderful. It's so peaceful, you'd never know you were surrounded by millions of people.

It is a beautiful walk up from the McGill campus, to the top lookout. It is however a bit of hard work in the snow (you do have to step over a ‘this path is closed in winter’ sign, so they try to warn you)....More

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

Autumn would probably be special because if the changing colors of the leaves. I was there too early in September to witness it. Still a pretty place.
