As he did with its cousin in New York City, Frederick Law Olmsted designed Mont-Royal Park, this one between 1873 and 1881.
The highest point of Montreal, and extending over 100 hectares, the park is home to a vast network of walking paths and stairs, a body of water (Beaver Lake), wooded hills, secret paths, esplanades, gently or steeply sloping lawns, and habitats for hundreds of birds and other wildlife. The beautiful lookouts and the impressive Saint Joseph's Oratory whose 38-metre-in-diameter copper dome rises to 97 metres high offer impressive views of Montreal and the surrounding region.
Run, row, skate, toboggan, read, walk, dream, stroll, flirt, listen to the famous tom-toms and dance, or picnic in the summer as a family. In short, a true paradise.
