La Fontaine Park, Montreal

(300+ reviews on the web)
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 very beautiful park. Beautiful walkways and lots of squirrels rummaging through the base of trees. Worth a walk around but probably not make a day of it.  more »

  • Very nice and huge parc, plenty of place to relax on the grass and watch the fountain. Also great for walks with your loved one or friends. Usually kept very clean
  • Not a family place anymore! In the middle of the afternoon too many teens and young adults smoking cannabis as well as drinking at the same time. A few years ago I enjoyed taking my daughter to the park, no we avoid it like the plague.
  • J'aime sa grandeur, et sa variété, superbe pour se poser sur un banc avec un livre. Grand espace vert avec point d'eau, au centre le la ville.
  • Love the place. Near downtown and lot of open spaces. Beautiful specially in summer and in in winter too.
  • Le plus beau parc de tout montreal, je conseil a tout les voyageur de faire un tour au parc la fontaine. Meilleur place ou aller faire un pik nik en apres midi
