La Fontaine Park, Montreal

4.6
#9 of 34 in Parks in Montreal
Nature / Park
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.

  • This is a beautiful park. There's plenty to see and do here. Lots of benches, trees, paths, and more. There's a large pond in the park that's worth walking around. La Fontaine Park was the last place I visited during my weekend in Montreal on Canada Day weekend and it was a fantastic way to cap it off.
  • It's a nice park. Good enough space for parking. However, there were large crowds and I couldn't take the smoke. I don't even want to talk about temporary toilets that were installed near parking.
  • Beautiful park in the middle of Le Plateau. It has a central park vibe to it. It offers lots of activities ranging from sightseeing to organized sports. It's definitely a park to see in Montreal.
  • Big playground for kids, pond, kiddie pool, baseball and tennis. Beware, parking is not free! Paid $4.50CAD for 90 minutes at the booth. People sunbathing around the pond. Lots of bikers and runners. Relaxing atmosphere. It is clean and well kept. Lots of picnic tables. Great for a family walk. Saw an amphitheater. Probably they have some festivals.
  • Lovely place to bring a picnic and a bottle of vino on a summer afternoon. Quiet and romantic. Great date location.
