La Fontaine Park

Located in the heart of the Plateau-Mont-Royal, the metropolis’ emblematic park is filled with places to lay your mat down. The abundance of vegetation allows us to easily seek refuge under a tree whose leaves allow the sun’s warm rays to peek through. Take advantage of the cultural activities available, like the jazz cocktail hour on Thursday evenings.

This former landfill site, that measures 153 hectares (half the size of New York’s Central Park), was covered in greenery and converted into a zero-waste park. It is characterized by large open spaces that are reminiscent of the countryside. On the site you can find many spheres that are used for protecting the traps that collect the biogas given off by the buried waste.

Molson Park

Molson Park in Rosemont is divided into perfectly symmetrical parts separated by Iberville street. The different paths converge on a single central point in the park, reminding us of the architecture of English squares.

Once host to the Montreal’s baseball team, The Expos, Jarry Park in Villeray is known for its sports and multicultural vocation. Special mention for the homemade ice tea from the Petit Brûloir, located 5 minutes from the park.
