La Fontaine Park, Montreal
(4.6/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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. To visit La Fontaine Park and other attractions in Montreal, use our Montreal trip builder.

  • Located in the Plateau Mont - Royal Park is to explore during the summer especially. It is good to take a picnic in good company! There are always people who walk, run, walk their pet! Do not forget many hungry squirrels of groceries... To watch his little beasts! Loll.

  • This beautiful park is the ideal place for all those who wish to relax, do their jogging, read a good book... It is very clean, well-appointed (picnic areas, benches...) ... and squirrels are very many! In short, I loved me walk around during my stay in Montreal and I advise you to do the same... you will not be disappointed!

  • In the parks of Montreal, with the Angrignon Park, it is THE most beautiful in my opinion! Well located, it's also like... The pond, grass to expand space and respect for people who flock. Ideal for dogs, children, and those who like to read out!

  • Where: La Fontaine Park - Montreal What: A local park How was it: This is a nice place for a jog, bike ride, picnic and even skating during winter. There are restaurants surrounding this park, many people will order to go and have the lunch in the park. It's nice clean and quiet. Grade: Eli = 4, Serge = 4 Recommend: Yes, it's a nice and quiet place to spend an afternoon.
  • A beautiful large park of a block size at the corner Sherbrooke and Papineau Sts and where you can take a sun tan, jog, walk your dog, play tennis volleyball or have a simple picnic. It's a shame that responsible people let it run down: lots of cut floating weed on the water, big hole or uprise on road asphalt around lake, accumulated dirt on corners, deteriorated cement steps covered with dirt and weeds....
  • Superb park! great for dogs. But just walking around the beautiful fountains and such is a real pleasure any time of the year.
  • Vibrant and active park full of all sorts of activities for all walks of life. You'll find plenty of young folks practicing their favorite hobbies, but there are also playground for the kids and a pond to relax around. The pond is picturesque attracting new weds and their photographers.
  • Perfect spot for a stroll in Montreal. Trees, water, and plenty of scenic views.
