La Fontaine Park, Montreal

4.6
#9 of 37 in Parks in Montreal
Formerly a large military training area, La Fontaine Park offers peace and quiet if you want to spend the day outdoors. At 34 ha (84 ac), the Montreal park often gets compared to New York's Central Park for its beauty and nature. Go on a picnic or attend a show at the local open-air theater. Admire some of the famous monuments, including one dedicated to the first Canadian prime minister, after whom the park was named. In summer, take a dip in the outdoor swimming pools, and go skating for free during winter. Use our Montreal trip app to add La Fontaine Park and other attractions to your Montreal vacation plans.

  • Unlike other parks, La Fontaine allows walks and races during the winter. Many people with babies, their pets, and even alone.

  • Beautiful big park with lots of mature trees, ponds and fountains. Art exposed also. A lot of people go for a picnic with your family, group, couple or alone to have fun and relax.

  • Beautiful place in a park to skate big! For once, this isn't in the round. Skating is free, there is a room to change, the bathrooms, Skate rentals and a restaurant for the family.

  • One of the most beautiful parks in Montreal. You can arrive by walking from Mont royal station. Ideal to walk, jogging or enjoy a sweet spot alone or with your friends. Not a place to practice sports; but ideal to have a great bbq or a picnic day🍞. Or just walk your 🐕!
  • We went skating on the lake in this park. Had a great time. The ice was very nice and there was plenty of room to skate. They have equipment for Learners. They have indoor change rooms and snack bar and restaurant.
  • Nice large green space in Montreal. Has a nice pond that you can also skate on in the winter. Lots of space for picnics.
  • Went there for skating, it's free(if you have your own skates and locks), has lots of lights, there is and indoor facility to change your skates and bathrooms. The park itself is pretty big and beautiful for a little walk. Bear in mind it's fresh water skating, so the ice is not the smoothest. But still fun and beautiful.
  • This is a great large park, sometimes a bit crowded but still surprisingly clean and free of weirdos during the day. Siting by the lake is the best you can do there as it is beautiful.
