    Took boys on a bike ride around the Olympic rowing pool and on the Grand Prix course. Stopped and looked at the canal locks too. Afterwards we went to the beach and the boys went on Aquazilla. All in ...  more »

    It is a very good visit pleasant and relaxed, walk through the beautiful park, to admire its vegetation and to see native wildlife is the plus... don't forget to bring comfortable shoe

    Bring your money to park your car. They want you to pay $20 to have a walk in this ordinary park. I called the administration and asked why they put fees to have us enjoy a few relaxing moments after a week of work. Well, the smart brains at the office said they consider the park a touristic attraction. It has nothing to do with any touristic attraction, it's a simple park. I pay if I park at the pool, I pay if I park at the beach, I pay if I park to see the Gilles Villeneuve track. All these are already tremendously expensive, thank you. The average income in Montreal is 40K but you are not aware because white collars make 2x or even 3x that amount on our taxes! I DON'T WANT to pay to have a walk in my park.

    Best festival grounds I have been to yet, Forested sections as well as big open spaces allow for big crowds as well as it opens up to a variety of stages to full fill all your festival needs!

    Nice park but note that the splash park is tiny and not worth the special trip. Also note that access to the park is limited due to construction. In addition, the playground seems to be closed(?)

    Absolutely terrible service by every employee I interacted with. I tried 4 times to bookan appointment to see Toundra for a wedding. The first time I spoke with a woman named Emilie and she was so rude on the phone. She was snobby and kept trying to NOT give me an appointment to see the venue. Finally I was able to convince her to give me an appointment. Then I had to reschedule it. I called twice, left two messages and never heard back. Then I emailed the venue and got an answer from Simon saying they cannot give me an appointment to come see the place, since they are 'occupied with events for 2016'. How do they expect to book events for 2017 if they don't let anyone visit?? I am EXTREMELY disappointed with this venue, and its employees Emilie and Simon who I dealt with. If anyone is trying to book a wedding with them, I would encourage you to go elsewhere. How helpful will these people be on that magical/stressful day, if at the initial interaction they have an inflated sense of self?

Where to stay in Montreal

If beautiful architecture and views over the water appeal, stay in the historic neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal), where you'll be a stone's throw from the best attractions in the city. If modern convenience is more important to you, look for accommodations in the downtown neighborhood of Centre-Ville, or head a bit farther out to the artsy district of Plateau Mont-Royal. LGBTI visitors might want to consider staying in The Village, Montreal's famously progressive hub of gay and lesbian culture.
